ETD LaTeX template

LaTeX is a typesetting system for formatting complex text, such as formulae with unconventional characters, tables and figures, and other nontraditional text. It is most typically used for science, engineering and mathematics documents.  Although students may use the template to create their thesis document, submission to UVicSpace must be a PDF produced from the the LaTeX version.  Please ensure that any LaTeX software you use to produce your ETD is Unicode compliant, or it may not be indexed in UVicSpace.

Important notes:

Use of this template is VOLUNTARY!  Faculty of Graduate Studies DOES NOT require students to use templates.

Use of this template does not ensure approval of the format of your thesis by Graduate Admissions and Records and the Faculty of Graduate Studies. Please review the Faculty of Graduate Studies Thesis/Dissertation Formatting guide.

Downloading tips:

  1. Right click (or ctrl-click on Macs) the link above, and choose "Save link as ..." (Firefox) or "Save target as ..." (Internet Explorer).
  2. Save the file to an appropriate location on your computer.
  3. The file is a zip archive containing a number of files. Depending on how your computer is configured, the archive may extract the files automatically, or you may need to do it manually. On modern versions of Windows, you can right-click the file and select "Extract all ...". On Macs, double-clicking the file should be sufficient.
  4. The unzipped archive will consist of a directory called "ThesisTemplateUVIC2010". Inside that directory is a file called README_FIRST.txt. Open that file and follow the instructions.
