SLU University Library templates

  • Doctoral theses. The SLU University Library thesis template is mandatory to use for doctoral theses (for the “kappa” or summary chapter in compilation theses and monographs). It can also be used for licentiate theses.
  • Student theses and independent student projects
  • Reports

The templates are continuously updated. The latest version of the library’s Word templates and tips on how to use them can be found here:

All templates follow the guidelines for SLU publications.

Other SLU templates

The SLU division of communication offers several templates. For example, there is a report template for InDesign if you prefer.

Accessibility

Pdf documents published by SLU must be compliant with the Swedish accessibility regulations. In order for your final pdf to be accessible you need to follow the formatting in the templates and add descriptions of all images (so-called alt-texts) to images and tables in the Word document.

Instructions on how to make your text accessible is available at the page Word Templates, under ”Creating accessible pdf files in Word”.
