ETD Formatting and Working With Multimedia Files


ETD Formatting Requirements

All theses and dissertations completed at KU must meet KU's requirements for formatting specific components, including Title and Acceptance pages. Please refer to the formatting guidelines on the KU Libraries Formatting page to ensure that the final, PDF version of your thesis or dissertation will meet the standards required to earn your degree, that it will be accepted by ProQuest and KU ScholarWorks, and that it will print correctly if you choose to purchase bound copies.

KU's requirements for thesis and dissertation formatting include and comply with ProQuest's formatting requirements. You can find ProQuest's formatting requirements outlined separately below.


Support for Formatting Theses and Dissertations

Staff at the KU Libraries maintain thorough LibGuides and tutorials concerning how to meet KU's Formatting Requirements using Microsoft Word. You can find this instructional support in the ETD Formatting LibGuide.
