The UF Graduate School Editorial Office, located in Grinter Hall and led by Stacy Wallace, is here to serve students, faculty, and staff with any thesis, dissertation, and curriculum issues that may arise.
For faculty and staff, the Editorial Office coordinates the publication of the UF Graduate Catalog and hosts all meetings of the UF Graduate Curriculum Committee, in turn, contributing to the online database of graduate course proposals and approvals, known as the Academic Approval Tracking System.
For students, the Editorial Office oversees the thesis and dissertation process, offering guidance to ensure all graduate students’ theses and dissertations meet UF’s high standards and are ready for electronic submission and digital archiving with the UF Libraries. The Editorial Office also provides and maintains information regarding editorial thesis and dissertation checklists, and format guidelines pertaining to the thesis and dissertation submission process.
In addition, the Editorial Office works hand-in-hand with the Application Support Center, the office located in the Hub providing workshops and one-on-one consultations to students relating to the thesis and dissertation formatting templates. The Editorial Office does not examine or critique content, scholarship, research methods or writing style; this is the responsibility of the student and his or her supervisory committee. However, the Editorial Office can provide referrals to outside editors and formatters available for hire, should further assistance be necessitated or desired.
