Thesis/Dissertation Formatting Workshop

Not sure if you want to do an article-based or traditional monograph thesis/dissertation? In this workshop we will discuss the UT Arlington Thesis/Dissertation Manual, how the two formats differ, and which one is right for you. In this workshop, we will also learn and practice some formatting tips and tricks in Microsoft Word to make the process easier.   

These workshops will utilize a Template and Mock Document for theses and dissertations (both are MS Word files).

Copyright and Authors' Rights

Everything you write for publication is your intellectual property, yet many publishers ask you to sign over your property to them for free. Find out how you can retain some or all of your copyright when you publish, even in prestigious publications. Retaining your rights allows you to reuse and share your work more freely and often results in higher visibility of your work and more citation counts. This workshop is presented by Jody Bailey, Director of Publishing in the UT Arlington Central Library.

This event has already occurred. Please check back for upcoming opportunities.
