Thesis and Dissertation
The UF Graduate School Editorial Office is here to help with thesis, dissertation, and curriculum issues. The office oversees the thesis and dissertation process, offering guidance to students, faculty, and staff to ensure all master's theses and doctoral dissertations meet UF’s high standards and are ready for electronic submission and digital archiving within the UF Libraries. The editorial team is happy to answer questions about format and reference systems, tables, figures, and equations, along with those related to copyright and documentation issues. Editors do not examine or critique content, scholarship, research methods or writing style, as this falls under the responsibility of the student and their supervisory committee members. The Editorial Office can provide referrals to outside editors and skilled document-formatters available for hire, should further assistance be necessitated or desired. The office also publishes the University of Florida Guide for Preparing Theses and Dissertations, a comprehensive guide outlining the procedures required when formatting and submitting a thesis or dissertation to the Graduate School Editorial Office for review and approval.
