Tools & Templates - Frequently Asked Questions
Are these templates and tools really free?
Can I edit the templates?
Yes. The templates are provided in MS Word format (DOCX), so you can edit the files to suit your specific needs.
Can I share the templates?
You’re welcome to share these templates with your friends or colleagues in their original form via email or chat.
If you wish to wish to share the templates on your website or anywhere else on the public web, please link to this page instead.
Should I follow the templates verbatim?
The templates are based on standardized chapter structures, but the exact structure and layout required by your university may differ. Therefore, it’s always best to review the specific requirements of your university and program before settling on a structure.
What's the difference between the full template and the chapter templates?
The full dissertation/thesis template provides a high-level outline structure, whereas the individual chapter templates provide more detail.
If you’re just starting the writing process, the former could help you structure your outline document and get a feel for how it all fits together, whereas the latter (chapter-specific templates) can be used as you approach each chapter.
