Instructions for the report templates

Last changed: 23 August 2017

Use the templates from SLU University Library if you don’t want to think about formatting and layout. The templates are created for Microsoft Word and can be used in both SLU-reports and student reports unless your institution has different requirements.

Front page and title page

If your department has no own template or writing directions for the front page, you can use the templates from SLU University Library.

  • Open a new copy of the front page template
  • The file contains macros that must be enabled, for you to continue. It also contains information that is shown when you enable the macros. When you have read the information, a form opens, which you fill in. When you click the OK button in the form, your information is inserted in the document. The result is a Word file. You cannot return to the form after clicking OK .If you lack some information when filling in the form, you either can open a new file and start all over again or edit the Word file as usual.
  • When the pages are ready, create a PDF file and merge it with the PDF file from the insert (the text).

Insert (text pages) in reports

SLU has no common policy for the layout of reports. Individual departments may have different guidelines and writing directions. Please check with your department if there are any special guidelines or other instructions that you should follow. If there aren’t any, you can use the library’s template.

We recommend you to write your text in the template from the very beginning. You can also paste in text from another document but there is a risk that formatting comes along with the text and causes trouble.
