Introduction
The work you have done up to this point in preparing to write your thesis is
outside the province of this manual. It assumes that your research is complete,
that your final thesis draft has been examined and approved by your major
professor and committee members, and that you are now ready to prepare the
thesis in final form.

This manual sets out the requirements for thesis format established by the
Graduate Studies Committee of Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology. These
requirements must be met as a minimum in order to procure the approval of the
Director of the Library. Individual departments of the Institute may have
various additional requirements or may specify in greater detail those that
follow. We urge you to learn first from your own graduate committee what, if
any, special departmental requirements apply to you and then, taking these into
consideration, to prepare your thesis in accordance with the instructions of this
manual.

The format approval review of the deposit copy of your thesis is intended to
assist you in meeting the requirements of this manual. You are urged to consult
the Director of the Library if you have questions. Because there may be
problems, do not wait until the deadline periods.



Procedure for Thesis Approval and Deposit
This chapter presents the required procedure for thesis approval and deposit. A
candidate who fails to meet these requirements will not graduate and must
register for the following quarter. For regulations governing this registration,
you are referred to the Director of Graduate Studies.

Thesis Format Approval

The deadline for thesis format approval is two weeks before commencement.
Following the defense, take the unbound corrected copy of your completed
thesis to the Director of the Library. The paper for the format approval copy
must be 8 1/2 by 11 inch but does not have to meet quality requirements. The
Director of the Library will provide an approval statement that the student gives
to the Director of Graduate Studies.
                                       6

Duplication of Thesis

After thesis format approval, have the thesis duplicated. Three copies (double-
sided) are required by the Graduate Studies Committee. Additional copies may
be required by the department or may be produced at the student's option for
his or her own use. Duplication costs are the responsibility of the student.

Deposit Copy

One copy of your thesis, called the deposit copy, is deposited with the Director
of Graduate Studies for addition to the Institute Library theses collection and
must meet the specifications for quality paper, typing, format, duplication, and
the other requirements set forth in this manual. You must pay for binding the
deposit copy.

Major Professor's Copy

You must give one copy of your thesis to your major professor and it becomes
his or her property. You must pay for binding the major professor's copy.

Stack Copy

One copy of your thesis serves as the circulating document. This copy is called
the "stack copy." The library will pay for binding the stack copy.

Deposit of Thesis

No later than one week prior to commencement, deliver all copies to the
Director of Graduate Studies accompanied by a receipt from the Director of the
Library stating that you have paid for all binding.


GENERAL INFORMATION
Library Use of Institute Theses

The deposit copy of each thesis becomes a part of the thesis collection of the
Institute Library and is available for review. Although you may wish to
examine model theses already in the collection as examples, the guidelines in
this manual must be followed. Ask the Director of the Library for model
suggestions.
                                         7

Use of Copyrighted Material in Theses

If you quote extensively from copyrighted material, you should obtain
permission from the author or publisher, whichever holds the copyright. Such
permission is usually granted on condition that acknowledgment is made. If
payment is required, this is your responsibility. Be very sure that you obtain
permission to use all such material before you submit your thesis for approval.

Copyrighting of Theses

If you want to have your thesis copyrighted, you must have a letter from your
major professor and the head of your department addressed to the Director of
Graduate Studies requesting that the thesis be copyrighted. In this letter they
should state the reasons they consider it desirable or necessary.

Confidential Status of Thesis

If your thesis is to be placed in confidential status, consult the Director of
Graduate Studies for information.

Assistance in Preparation of Thesis

This manual assumes that you have adequate command of the English language
and its constructions, spelling, and usage. Assistance, if needed, should be
sought in standard dictionaries and handbooks of composition. See Appendix
G. You may submit your manuscript for review at the Learning Center.

Manuscript Preparation

We suggest that you become thoroughly familiar with the requirements of this
manual and with the special publication requirements of your department. It is
imperative that the final manuscript adhere to these rules as set down. You bear
the responsibility for the appearance, the form, and content of your thesis. All
copies must be identical.

Formatting

Your thesis must be printed double-sided. All four margins must be set to 1
inch. Gutter margin must be set to 0.5 inch with the gutter position set to
“left.” If you are using Microsoft Office, the following information should be
helpful:
                                          8

    To properly format page numbers, the header must be set to “different
     odd and even pages.”

       In the Page Setup dialogue box where you can set the margins, gutter,
       and gutter position, there is a Multiple Pages drop down box. Select
       “Mirror Margins.”

Duplication Processes

Both xerographic copies and copies printed on a letter quality or laser printer
are acceptable. In either case, you must use paper which meets the
specifications set forth in this manual. The only exception is the listing of a
computer program in which case a letter-quality printer need not be used.
Typed copies are also acceptable, but not recommended. Any other methods of
reproduction must be discussed with the Director of the Library and your
duplication service before you begin to prepare your final copy.

Note: Preparation and duplication of theses can be expensive. It is suggested
that you have a clear understanding in advance of the cost of photographic
work, drawings, and duplication before final typing is started. You should
consult the Institute Printing and Duplication Center for information about
special materials required for the reproducing of the graphics used in
illustrating your thesis.



ARRANGEMENT OF CONTENTS
Opening Component

Title Page

A title page is required. This page is the primary way by which the thesis will
be identified. This page is not numbered, but it is counted as the first page (i) of
the opening component. The contents of the title page are as follows:

      Title. This must be the full official title of the thesis. The title should be
       a meaningful description of the content of the thesis. Information
       retrieval systems use the words in the title to locate theses.
      Candidate's name. Your full name is preferable to the use of initials.
       Whatever form you select, use it consistently throughout the thesis.
                                         9

      Degree. Write out the full name of the degree for which you are a
       candidate. Candidates must be very sure that they use the precise degree
       name, for example, Master of Science in Chemical Engineering.
      Date. This is determined by the month and year in which you qualify for
       graduation.

A blank page following the title page is required.

Abstract Page

An abstract page must accompany all theses for approval. Along with text of
the abstract itself, the abstract page must contain a heading, the candidate's
names as it appears on the title page with the last name first, the abbreviation of
the degree, the name of the institution granting the degree, the month and year
the degree is obtained, the title of the thesis (wording and punctuation to agree
exactly with the Title Page) and the name of the major professor.

Place the heading ABSTRACT, in capital letters, centered, without
punctuation, two inches from the top of the page. The rest of the text begins
four spaces below the heading, is double-spaced, and is flush with the left-hand
margin. The text of the abstract should include a statement of the thesis
problem, a brief exposition of the research, and a condensed summary of
findings. Remember, the abstract may be used separate from the main text of
the thesis for reference purposes. Therefore, the abstract should not make
reference to any tables or figures nor to other works. Also, all nonstandard
symbols or abbreviations should be defined and the use of equations should be
avoided. The maximum length of the abstract is 350 words not including the
first paragraph as described above. The abstract is neither counted nor
numbered.

Dedication

A dedication is optional. If used, it should be brief and centered on its own
page. No heading is necessary.

Acknowledgments

Acknowledgments are also optional, but most theses do include a brief
statement of appreciation or recognition of special assistance. If you intend to
include them, place them on their own page with the heading,
ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS, in capital letters, centered, without punctuation,
two inches from the top of the page. The text begins four spaces below.
                                        10

Table of Contents

A table of contents is required. The function of a table of contents is to allow
the thesis to be used efficiently. It provides an overview of the thesis' structure
and an index for selective reading of the thesis. All materials following the
Table of Contents are listed in it. No preceding material is listed. The titles of
parts, sections, or chapters, and their principal subdivisions should be listed in
the Table of Contents and must be worded exactly as they appear in the body of
the thesis. The heading TABLE OF CONTENTS, in capital letters, is centered,
without punctuation, two inches from the top of the page. The listing begins at
the left-hand margin four spaces below the heading.

List of Tables and Figures

You should list any tables or figures used in the thesis on a separate page. The
listing begins at the left-hand margin four spaces below the heading. The List
of Tables or List of Figures uses exactly the same numbers and captions as
appear with the tables and figures in the text or in the appendices. The heading
LIST OF TABLES or LIST OF FIGURES, in capital letters, is centered,
without punctuation two inches from the top of the page.

Lists of Symbols, Abbreviations, Nomenclature; Glossary

If needed in your thesis, place these lists after the Lists of Tables and Figures in
the Preliminaries. Follow a form acceptable to your field of study.

Text

There are no specific requirements of the Graduate Studies Committee for the
internal organization of your text. The requirements are only that you use some
standard scheme of organization and that you use one system consistently
throughout the thesis. The recommendations presented here are not intended to
be restrictive. You can chose your own system, if your major professor agrees.

Introduction

The Introduction may constitute either the entire first chapter or only the
opening statement of the first chapter. If the introduction is to be included as a
separate chapter, the heading, INTRODUCTION, is the title of the first chapter
(or major division) and its placement is consistent with that of other chapter
titles. If the introduction is included only as an opening statement, it requires no
special treatment.
                                        11

Body of the Thesis

This is the substance of the thesis, the detailed written statement of your
research. The internal organization of this material into chapters, sections, and
subsections is up to you and your major professor. Divisions and subdivisions
should be introduced by brief descriptive headings which, by variations of
format, indicate the relative importance of the text divisions.

Summary and Conclusions

These are usually treated as the last major division of the Text.

Recommendations

The Recommendations section follows the Conclusions only if the subject
matter permits and if you wish to include it.


Reference Material

There is a wide diversity of content and location of notes in the publications of
the sciences, the humanities, and the social sciences. You are strongly
encouraged to use the in-text or parenthetical system of documentation which
cites the work by its designated number in the List of References and relevant
paging. Your reference might look like the following:
                 . . . The evidence for the theory has been widely
                 explained [4: 382-383].



Every thesis makes use of other writings, either in direct quotation or by
reference. Your thesis must contain a List of References. Pertinent works that
have been consulted but not specifically cited should be listed under the
subheading General References, and references specifically cited should be
listed under the subheading Cited References.. Place the List of References
immediately after the text. See Appendix F.

The references begin with a cover sheet bearing the heading LIST OF
REFERENCES, in capital letters, centered, and without punctuation. This page
is neither counted nor numbered. The heading is repeated on the first page of
the LIST OF REFERENCES itself, two inches from the top, centered, and
without punctuation. The list of references begins four spaces below the
heading.
                                        12

In general, each item consulted in the preparation of the thesis, whether cited
specifically or mentioned in general, should be numbered and listed in an
alphabetical order. The elements are the following: Author(s), Title, Publisher,
and Year. The elements should be given in full form to facilitate easy retrieval
by others. Do not abbreviate any useful data, for example an author's first name
if given or the journal title in full. The List of References is double-spaced. For
additional guidance consult your advisor. See Appendix G for style authorities.

Appendices

Some students will not need to include an Appendix. An appendix contains
supplementary material, not immediately essential to an understanding of the
                                       14

subject. This section is separated from the preceding material by a cover sheet
with the heading APPENDICES, in capital letters (or if there is only one,
APPENDIX), centered, and without punctuation. This sheet is neither counted
nor numbered.

The APPENDICES may be divided into Appendix A, Appendix B, etc.,
depending on the kinds and amounts of materials used. These divisions should
be treated as first order subdivisions.

The letter and title for each Appendix should be shown at the top of the first
page of the individual Appendix. If separate sheets are used for the
identification of individual Appendices, these sheets are numbered and
counted. Each Appendix with its title, if it has one, should be listed separately
in the Table of Contents as a first order subdivision under the heading
APPENDICES. See Sample C. Tables and figures in the Appendices must be
numbered and captioned and also listed in the List of Figures and List of Tables
in the opening component. Appendices must meet the left-hand margin
requirement of 1 inch but not necessarily the requirements for top, bottom,
right-hand margins, and line spacing.

Multi-Volume Thesis

The length of the thesis may necessitate two or more volumes. When more than
one volume is used, the separations should come at the end of major divisions
of the thesis. The Title Page is repeated in each volume and all are identical
except for the word "Volume I," "Volume II," etc., just below the title. The
Title Pages of Volumes II, III, etc., are neither counted nor numbered. All other
preliminaries are in Volume I. In numbering the pages of the text and reference
material, numbering is continuous from Volume I through the end of the last
volume.


PREPARATION OF MANUSCRIPT
Paper

Your thesis must be typed or printed double-sided on 8 1/2 by 11 inch white
paper. The deposit copy must be 25%, or greater, rag content paper. All other
copies may be on regular 20-pound typing paper. Photographic paper may be
used only in special circumstances. See page 22 for information about its use in
theses.
                                       15

Oversized Pages

Oversized pages up to 11 by 22 1/2 inch are acceptable without special
permission as long as the folded edge is at least 1 1/2 inches from the left edge
to permit unfolding, and the right edge lines up evenly with the standard 8 1/2
by 11 inch sheets. The page number appears in the upper right-hand corner or
in the middle of the sheet as usual. The use of any sheets larger that 11 by 22
1/2 inches require consultation with the Director of Graduate Studies.

High-speed Printer Output

High-speed printer output sheets may be included in the text or the appendices,
if they meet the requirements for paper and margins as stated in this manual.
Appendix sheets do not have to conform to the requirements for top, bottom,
and right-hand margins; however, a 1inch margin is still required at the left.
Each sheet, whether included in the text or in the appendices, must have a page
number appropriate to its placement in the thesis.


Type

All text must be rendered using black ribbon or toner which produces sharp,
clear type. Only standard type sizes such as pica, elite, and executive are
acceptable, and only one type face may be used throughout the thesis This type
face must have all characters needed to complete the thesis. This includes upper
and lower case as well as all needed punctuation marks. Italics may be used
only when appropriate, for example when rendering book and journal titles, or
foreign terms. For the generation of symbols or special characters select
appropriate software. Handwritten equations and formulas are not acceptable.
Use of any nonstandard type styles must be approved by the Director of the
Library.

Appearance

The text should be double-spaced throughout with the exception of appendices
as noted above using margins of 1 inch for the top, bottom, and right sides and
1 inch for the left side. Printing should not extend more than a single line below
the bottom margin line, and then, only to complete the last line of a chapter,
paragraph, subdivision, or figure caption. A new paragraph at the bottom of a
page must have at least two full lines of print, or it should begin the next page.
The page may be shortened to allow this. The last word on the page should not
                                       16

be hyphenated. The line should be short of the margin and the whole word
placed on the following page.

Corrections

No interlineations or crossing out of letters or words are acceptable. The use of
correcting fluid is not acceptable on the deposit copy.

Page Numbering

Page numbers are placed without punctuation 1/2 inch from the top edge of the
sheet, either centered over the text or in the upper right-hand margin.
Consistency of treatment of page numbers is more important than choice of
position. The opening components of the thesis are numbered in consecutive
lower case Roman numerals. The Title Page is considered to be page i, but the
number does not appear on the page. Roman numeral ii appears on the first
page following the Title Page and Abstract. Every page on which any typing or
drawing appears has a number except: The Title Page is counted but not
numbered. The abstract page is neither numbered nor counted. Cover sheets
preceding the Bibliography and the Appendices are neither numbered nor
counted. The Text and all Reference pages, including the Appendices are
numbered consecutively in arabic numerals, beginning with 2 on the second
page of the text.

TABLES AND FIGURES
General Instructions

In preparing both tables and figures, use a computer wherever possible. Tables
or figures should conform to the same regulations governing the text. If the
computer printout is columnar output to be used in the Appendices, it may be
listed with Appendix letters and headings rather than as tables and figures with
numbers and captions. Regardless of the process used to duplicate the thesis, all
tables and figures, except the photographs, used in the text must be on paper
meeting the requirements.

Place the whole table or figure, including the caption, on the page within the
prescribed margins. A table or figure too large to fit within margins may be
divided and continued on the following page or pages. Tables or figures which
are slightly oversized may be reduced to fit within the margins. The bottom of a
table or figure usually faces the lower edge of the page on which it appears;
however, if its size and format require horizontal placement, the bottom of the
                                       17

table or figure faces the outer edge of the page. Tables and figures of a half-
page or less in length should appear on the same page with the text, separated
from the text above and below by triple-spacing. Tables and figures larger than
half-page are better placed on separate sheets. Two or more small tables or
figures should be grouped on a single page. In all cases, tables and figures
should follow the first reference as soon as practical to aid the reader.

Numbering

Tables and figures are numbered in separate series. Each table and figure,
including any in the Appendices, must have a unique number in its own series.
The numbers in each series must appear in consecutive order in the thesis.
Arabic numerals, with capital and lower case letters for the captions, are used
for tables and figures. To show unique numbering in a thesis in parts, the
numbers of Tables and Figures may be expressed as 1.1, 1.1, 1.3, etc. Tables
and Figures in the Appendices may use numbering such as A1, A2, A3, etc. for
each series.

Note : Special systems of numbering may be required by some departments.
These should be reviewed with the Director of Graduate Studies before the
thesis is prepared in final form.

Tables

The word "Table" (with T capitalized), the table's number and its caption are
placed above the table so that one blank line is left between the bottom line of
the caption and the top line of the table. If any table continues to the following
or subsequent pages, the top line of the page reads, for example, "Table 16,
continued." The caption is not repeated. Leave one blank line before continuing
the body of the table.

Figures

The word "Figure" (with F capitalized), the figure's number, and its caption are
placed below the figure. Leave one blank line between the bottom edge of the
figure and the word "Figure," its number, and its caption. If any figure
continues to the following or subsequent pages, on the second line below the
bottom edge of the figure, type, for example, "Figure 16, continued." The
caption is not repeated.
                                        18

Captions of Tables and Figures

Every table and figure must have a caption. Together with the number, the
caption may be either centered or may start at the left-hand margin, placed at
the top or bottom of the item. There are two ways of centering: you may center
the word Table (or Figure), the table number, and its caption on one or more
lines, or you may center the word Table or Figure and its number on one line
and center the caption on the following line or lines. Horizontal or vertical
position of captions and numbers of tables and figures is always the same as the
positioning of the tables or figures themselves.

Captions should be as short as possible. Caption wording identical to that used
above each table below each figure must be repeated in the List of Tables and
the List of Figures. Capital and lower case letters are preferred for captions. If a
lengthy caption is essential, a brief descriptive statement may be used in the
List of Tables or List of Figures. Use the same statement above table or below
figure and end it with a period. Continue with the needed additional statement.
If the caption is longer than one line, double space between lines. Consistent
treatment is required.

Photographs

Mounting

Smaller than page-size photographs should be firmly mounted with either
adhesive specially prepared for photographic work or self-adhesive tissue or
dry- mounting tissue. If you are uncertain about the correct material or
procedures, consult the duplicating printing center.

The photographs should be mounted on the same kind of paper used in the
thesis in which they are to appear. [Note : Do not permanently mount
photographs before you obtain thesis approval.] Photographs should not be
mounted to obtain thesis approval. Mount photographs permanently only after
the thesis is duplicated. The Deposit Copy must contain the original
photographs. Other copies may also have photographs or Xerox reproductions
as your committee may desire.

Printing

Photographs may either be printed photographically on page-size photographic
paper or affixed on page-size paper used in the balance of the thesis for the
Deposit Copy.
                                      19

Marking

If photographs must be marked, it is important and necessary to use India ink.
Typing on the face of glossy prints will not reproduce on microfilm.

Unusual Material

We urge you to obtain the advice of the Director of Graduate Studies regarding
the preparation and presentation of all unusual material and to consult your
duplicating service to determine if the duplication of the material is possible
and practical. This is especially true with colored materials.
