Notes, Footnotes, and Bibliography
You and your supervisor should decide on the form and location of footnotes and the presentation of the bibliography at an early stage in the writing of the thesis, following a style guide or style of a significant refereed journal in your field.
Notes and footnotes
Notes and footnotes must be numbered consecutively throughout the thesis.
Three possible locations:
- at the bottom of pages
- at the end of chapters
- at the end of the main body of the text immediately preceding the bibliography
There must be only one bibliography in a thesis.
- must start at the top of a page
- must be listed in the table of contents
Note: If you have Web links in your bibliography they must be functional, and you must include the date on which you retrieved the material from the Web.
Each appendix must start on a new page. The titles of the appendices must be included in the table of contents.
Examples of items often included as appendices:
- Detailed methodologies
- Details of experimental data
- Diagrams of specialized equipment developed
- Samples of surveys
You must black out or white out any signatures that may appear in the appendices (and in the rest of the thesis).
