CHECKLIST FOR STUDENTS SUBMITTING FINAL COPIES
1. INTRODUCTION
These guidelines will help you prepare your thesis/dissertation/report according to sound
academic standards and, thereby, avoid unnecessary delays in having it accepted by the Graduate
School. Although some of the following rules may seem tedious, all of them have a specific
purpose. For instance, the emphasis on clear type and standard format is to ensure that a copy of
your thesis/dissertation/report can be made available to other scholars in your discipline through
the Harriet Irving Library and the National Library of Canada. Since neither institution accepts
substandard theses/dissertations/reports, then it is to your advantage to take pains in the
preparation and presentation of your work.
While the following guidelines are the standard for all departments and graduate academic units
(GAU), there may be some variation in your own department. Please consult with your Director
of Graduate Studies before beginning work on the final draft of the thesis/dissertation/report. A
selection of style manuals is given in Appendix I and consultation with the Reference Librarian
may provide valuable advice.
NOTE: These regulations and guidelines apply to both theses, dissertations and reports
completed at the graduate level.
II. GENERAL INFORMATION
1. Number of Copies
The Graduate School requires that you submit 2 copies (original + 1 copy) of your
thesis/dissertation/report in order to fulfill your degree requirements (following its approval
by the GAU &/or Supervisor). The School of Graduate Studies & UNB Library covers the
binding costs of the 2 required copies only. If you submit one copy electronically through the
Electronic Theses & Dissertations website, the Graduate School only requires one “original”
copy. All copies should be unbound but otherwise complete. Some GAUs may require a copy,
hence you should consult with your supervisor and the Director of Graduate Studies. If you
wish to have personal copies bound, you must submit all photocopies of your
thesis/dissertation/report (including “pink” Personal Binding Form with your payment)
directly to the Circulation Desk at the Harriet Irving Library. All personal binding costs
(including the Supervisor(s) or Examining Board members) are your responsibility.
2. Disposition of the Thesis/Dissertation/Report
The final disposition of the copies will normally be as follows:
(a) Original - University Library
(b) First Copy - Candidate's GAU or Branch Library
3. Microfilming and Library Use of the Thesis/Dissertation/Report
(a) Library Access to Thesis/Dissertation/Report
The University Library Release form (Appendix IV), allows you to select either (a)
general release, or (b) restricted use of the thesis/dissertation/report. In the latter case,
where you may wish to impose a restriction on the lending or use of the
thesis/dissertation/report, with the support of your supervisor, you must justify such
a restriction to the Dean of Graduate Studies. The maximum period for which
access may be restricted is four years.
(b) External Microfilming
University theses/dissertations/reports are microfilmed by Micromedia Ltd. for the
National Library of Canada. Microfiche copies will be submitted to University
Microfilms International to allow listing in Dissertation Abstracts International. You may
give permission for microfilming by completing the appropriate release form (Appendix
V), which will be available immediately after the successful completion of the oral
examination.
NOTE: A thesis/dissertation/report is likely to be rejected for microfilming by the
National Library unless it follows these guidelines.
4. Thesis/Dissertation/Report Title
Your thesis/dissertation/report will be a valuable reference for other scholars only if it can be
easily located within libraries. Retrieval systems use the key words in the title to locate
theses/dissertations/reports. It is essential that the title be meaningful and descriptive of the
content of the work. If possible use word substitutes for formulae, symbols, superscripts,
subscripts, Greek letters, etc. in the title. The thesis title should be kept as short as possible since
it has to be printed on the spine of the bound copy.
5. Costs
The full costs of producing (typing, reproducing, photography, binding) a
thesis/dissertation/report are your responsibility. It is also your responsibility to ensure that,
before leaving the university, the binding charges for all copies of the thesis/dissertation/report
have been paid in full. These costs are subject to change and current charges can be obtained
from the School of Graduate Studies at UNB. When the thesis/dissertation/report has been
accepted by the School of Graduate Studies, instructions will be given to proceed with the
binding of the required number of copies.
III. ORDER OF CONTENTS
1. Traditional or Articles Format
Theses/dissertations may follow either a "traditional" or an "articles" format.
2. Page Order
(a) Traditional Format
 Frontispiece or Quote Page facing the title page (if any)
 Title Page (see Appendix III to these guidelines)
 Abstract (not more than 350 words for the doctoral degree and not more than
150 words for the Masters degree). For any thesis written in a language other than
English, an abstract in English must precede an abstract in the language of the thesis
 Dedication (if any)
 Preface (if any)
 Acknowledgment (if any) should be listed with the prefatory pages only, not in each
paper when these are included in the text
 Table of Contents (must include your dedication, abstract, preface and
acknowledgement pages in small Roman numerals as well as listing chapter heads and
subheads, bibliography or list of works cited and appendices). See sample in Appendix
VI to these guidelines.
 List of Tables (if any)
 List of Figures or Illustrations (if any)
 List of Plates (if any)
 List of Symbols, Nomenclature or Abbreviations (if any)
 Body of the Text with footnotes (if any) and Bibliography or list of references.
Text should present the purpose, methods and scope of the investigation. It should also
set out the extent to which the investigation is complete and the conclusions reached.
It may also outline possibilities for further research. The length in the body of PhD
dissertations should normally not exceed 400 pages of approximately 100,000
words.
 Appendices (if any) may contain details of methodology, tabulated data, etc., not
provided in detail in the body of the text
 Curriculum Vitae or CV (see Appendix II to these guidelines) has no page number.
(b) Articles-format Theses/Dissertations:

Both the Master’s thesis and the Doctoral dissertation may be presented in
articles-format.

There are no limitations on the number of articles required for either the Master’s
thesis or for the PhD dissertation.

In addition to the articles, the thesis/dissertation contain an introductory chapter
that establishes the student’s familiarity with the field, sets out the objectives of
the thesis/dissertation, places the research in the larger context of the candidate’s
discipline, and explains the overall thematic cohesiveness of the articles. This
chapter should identify research patterns in the area, reviewing previous
publications and current research. It should also include a detailed analysis of
how the articles included in the text address the question/topic being studied, and
how the articles each contribute to the study. Any errata or discussion of the
articles can be included in the introductory chapter, the concluding chapter, or in
a footnote/endnote in the dissertation.

The articles-format of the thesis/dissertation must conform to the School of
Graduate Studies’ Regulations and Guidelines for the Preparation and
Submission of Graduate Reports, Theses, and Dissertations (available in paper
and on the SGS website).

The thesis/dissertation normally contains a final chapter (general discussion and
conclusions) that should relate the articles to the relevant disciplines or field of
study. It might also set out recommendations for future research or contain
implications for professional practice.

Both the introductory and final chapters should have their own
footnotes/endnotes and/or list of references.

There is no requirement to publish the articles, or to have submitted the articles
for publication, prior to the SGS oral defence.

As outlined in the SGS Regulations and Guidelines for the Preparation and
Submission of Graduate Reports, Theses, and Dissertations, candidates should
indicate the name(s) of journals in which articles have been published or to which
the articles will be submitted in the future.

The student in multiple-authored article(s) be the principal author or co-author.
The student must provide a clear statement in the introduction describing the
contribution made by him or her in each of the research and writing stages. The
statement on co-authorship should specifically address contributions made in i)
identification and design of the research proposal, ii) practical aspects of the
research, iii) data analysis, and iv) manuscript preparation. In the case of joint
authorship, an explanatory part of the thesis/dissertation text must outline the
nature of the candidate’s contribution to each publication included in the
thesis/dissertation;

The thesis/dissertation should be based on research that the student has conducted
while enrolled as a graduate student at UNB;

The decision on the number and quality of articles should be the responsibility of
the Supervisory Committee.

The thesis/dissertation must meet internal GAU requirements prior to being sent
to the Examining Board;

In the event an article has appeared (or will appear) in a journal where the
supervisor serves as editor or is active on the editorial board, the Completion of
GAU Requirements for Degree form should indicate that s/he has not been
involved in the review process; and

The student must demonstrate that he or she has the right to include a published
article in the thesis/dissertation. For articles which have been published, students
should include a letter of permission from the journal in the appendix of the
thesis/dissertation.
The Articles-Format Thesis/Dissertation
section was approved by the Executive
Committee of the School of Graduate
Studies, April 14, 2005.
3. Multi-volume Theses/Dissertations
If there is no way to avoid extending your thesis/dissertation to more than one volume, then the
following guidelines apply:
 each volume must have its own prefatory pages.
 the title page and abstract page(s) must be in the first volume.
 volume 1 must have a table of contents as well as a list of tables and a list of figures,
etc., for the entire thesis/dissertation.
 each additional volume must contain a duplicate of the title page in the first volume.
 the page numbering of the body of the thesis/dissertation must flow consecutively
from one volume to the next.
 for traditional-format theses/dissertations the bibliography and appendices for all
volumes will normally be at the end of the last volume and referred to in the table of
contents of each volume.
 for theses/dissertations which consist of separate articles, the appendices for all
volumes/articles are to be at the end of the last volume and referred to in the table of
contents. References and bibliographies will follow individual chapters, in the
appropriate volumes.
 when the appendices are bound in a separate volume, this volume must have a title
page, duplicating that of the main volume but with addition of the word of “Appendix"
or "Appendices" just below the title of the thesis/dissertation. The word "Appendix" or
"Appendices" as well as the short title must then appear on the spine. Numbering of
the appendices must flow in sequence from the first volume.
IV. FORMAT AND STYLE
1. Language and Spelling
Either British or American spelling of English is acceptable but the form chosen should be
consistent throughout the thesis/dissertation/report. If a Supervisory Committee permits a
thesis/dissertation/report to be written in a language other than English, two abstracts must be
presented, one in English, followed on a new page by another in the language of the thesis.
2. Typing and Printing
The text should be double-spaced including the Abstract, Acknowledgement (except for
quotations of more than one sentence, footnotes, tables and bibliography, all of which may be
single-spaced). Theses/dissertations/reports are to be typed or reproduced on one side of the
paper only. We don’t recommend double-sided for binding reasons. Most type styles, except
for various styles of script- like type, are acceptable. The entire text of the
thesis/dissertation/report must use the same font, with care taken to ensure evenness of
impression. If certain characters are not available on the typewriter or computer being used,
mathematical equations, complex tabular material, exponents and subscripts may, at the
discretion of the GAU, be inserted neatly by hand with black India ink. Letraset press-type
symbols must not be used in the text. No extensive erasures or use of correcting fluid are
permitted.
NOTE: The print and duplication of the thesis/dissertation/report must be of the highest quality.
Only solid, black print is acceptable. Broken, uneven, blurred, draft quality dot matrix or light
print is not acceptable.
Students are encouraged to use a Word software program or use templates which are available on
the Electronic Theses & Dissertations website: http://www.unb.ca/gradschl/etd/ to produce your
thesis/dissertation/report.
Print must be letter quality or near letter quality and laser printing is highly recommended. Pages
which have been photocopied from other sources and placed in the thesis/dissertation/report must
also be of the highest quality. If a high quality original is not available, the page should be
retyped or redrawn to conform with standards or the page should not be included in the
thesis/dissertation/report.
3. Paper
A good quality acid-free paper must be used for a master copy. Other copies may be
photocopied, offset, or computer-produced on any standard quality paper normally used in these
machines. The same quality of paper must be maintained throughout each individual copy of the
thesis. All theses should use standard 8½ x 11 inch (216mm x 279mm) paper size.
NOTE: Paper with punched holes is not acceptable.
4. Margins
There should be a margin of not less than 4 cm (1½ inches) on the left side of each sheet and of
not less than 2.5 cm (1 inch) on the top, bottom and right-side margins. This refers to the
illustrations as well as to the text, and to all other material bound with the
thesis/dissertation/report.
Note: If your margins do not conform to be above-noted, the thesis/dissertation/report will not
be accepted at the School of Graduate Studies.
5. Illustrations
The presentation of illustrative material should be consistent throughout the
thesis/dissertation/report, except for the case where articles are included in Ph.D. dissertations in
which case the format of the original publication is acceptable. Small illustrations may be placed
directly into the text of the thesis/dissertation/report, while larger ones should be of standard size
with allowance for the prescribed margins. Larger illustrations should be avoided if possible, but
if required, they must be submitted flat for inclusions into the text as foldouts or as unbound
insertions into a pouch inside the back cover of the thesis/dissertation/report.
(a) Tables and Figures
Remember that every page in the thesis/dissertation/report must bear a consecutive
number. [This includes pages bearing tables and figures.] Each table or figure should be
numbered and identified with the word "Table" or "Figure." In addition, separate lists of
all tables and figures, identifying each by name, number, and page should be included in
the introductory material at the beginning of all theses/dissertations/reports.
Tables or figures may be placed individually throughout the body of the text; or they may
be grouped together at the end of each chapter, or at the end of the
thesis/dissertation/report but before the bibliography or list of references, etc. When the
thesis/dissertation/report includes separate articles, grouping illustrative material at the
end of the thesis/dissertation/report is not an option. Both tables and figures in this type
of format are to be included within the relevant article (individually throughout the text or
as a group at the end of the article) and numbered consecutively using the chapter/article
number (i.e. when possible they should be renumbered to fit the
thesis/dissertation/report).
As far as possible, all titles of tables and figures should be on the same page as the table
or figure. In those cases where this is not possible, the title and explanation (or legend) of
the table or figure may be placed on the reverse side of the immediately preceding blank
page so that it faces the table or figure. However, the number of such a page must appear
on the blank side in conformity with the placement of page numbers in the rest of the
thesis/dissertation/report. These pages must be numbered consecutively with the rest of
the thesis/dissertation/report.
Note: The electronic version must have the title and explanation (or legend) on a
separate page after the corresponding figure without a page number. Make sure that it
does not affect the page count.
(b) Photographs
There are a number of options available for reproducing photographs and you may
choose the one you prefer. Remember, all photographs and reproductions of photographs
must be of excellent quality with a sharp colour contrast otherwise they will not be
accepted by the Graduate School. Please contact UNB Imaging Services for information
regarding this process at 453-4843 or imaging@unb.ca.
Dry-mounting tissue is the preferred method of affixing photographs although some glues
are acceptable as long as the photos adhere well to the page. Photographs reproduced
directly on 216mm x 279mm photographic paper are also acceptable. [Do not use tape of
any kind.] For advice and assistance in using any of these processes, contact UNB
Imaging Services. You are advised, particularly if numerous photographs are to be
presented, to mount several per page and have them reproduced to
thesis/dissertation/report page size with prescribed margins, by offset printing. Imaging
Services should be consulted for technical advice concerning the latter.
c) Maps
If you have to use maps in your thesis you should ensure that excellent print quality is
obtained. When copying maps from other sources, the print quality of the original must
be clear and sharp. Maps taken from published sources will usually require copyright
permission. You should follow copyright regulations discussed below. Oversize maps,
which will be inserted in a pocket on the inside back cover of the
thesis/dissertation/report, must be of excellent quality and labelled in accordance with the
list of maps which will appear in the prefatory pages. Keep this in mind if you intend to
reproduce maps as they must be redrawn if acceptable quality is not obtained.
Remember, microfilming is a black and white photographic process. Colours appear as
slightly varying shades of grey. Thus, lines on a graph should be identified by [labels or
symbols rather than by colors.] Similarly, shaded areas such as countries on a map, have
greater contrast in microfilm or photocopy if cross hatching is used instead of colour.
d) Line Diagrams and Equations
Line diagrams and equations printed by stencil can be conveniently reproduced by
photocopying or by offset printing. Direct reproduction of recorder output (e.g. chart
records, NMR Spectra, etc.) is permissible, but the illustrations must be clear and legible.
The originals of such recorder output must be submitted with the master copy of
your thesis/dissertation/report for purposes of microfilming. They will be returned
following microfilming.
6. Page Numbering
Typed consecutive numbers must be used for each page. Small Roman numerals are used for
the "preliminary pages" (those preceding the Text) with the numbers appearing at the center of
the bottom of each page. The title page is considered to be page 'i' but is unnumbered. Your
Introduction should start as page 1 (Arabic numerals). Arabic numerals must be used for all the
remainder of the thesis/dissertation/report pages except the vitae (including text, tables, pagesize figures and illustrations, bibliography, and appendices). The location of page numbers must
be consistent throughout the thesis/dissertation/report, including Figures, Illustrations, etc. ( i.e.
the top right hand comer). Note: If you have pictures, graphs, figures, tables, etc. that are
printed landscape on the page, your page number cannot be landscape. Your page
numbers must be placed on every page portrait & consistent throughout.
7. Footnotes
For the main body of a thesis/dissertation/report, footnotes may be placed at the foot of the page,
in a group at the end of the chapter, or grouped at the end of the thesis/dissertation/report before
the bibliography or list of references. When footnotes are collected after chapters or at the end of
the thesis/dissertation/report, their location must be shown in the table of contents by title and
page.
8. Bibliographic Form
The bibliography, or literature cited, lists sources of information used in the preparation of the
thesis/dissertation/report. The format will be defined by the conventions of the particular
research field and described in the recommended style manual. The bibliography or list of
references normally appears at the end of the thesis/dissertation/report, preceding the appendices
and vita. When individual articles are incorporated in the thesis/dissertation/report each will have
its own list of references.
Some departments and GAUs have particular stylistic requirements. You are advised, therefore,
to check with your supervisor prior to presentation of the final manuscript. A list of the style
manuals required for some departments is given in Appendix I. Many of these and other
recommended guides are available in the appropriate libraries on campus as well as in the
Bookstore.
9. Appendices
All appendix pages must be numbered consecutively with the rest of the thesis/dissertation/report
and must be of high quality print to conform with the rest of the thesis/dissertation/report. The
body of the text should contain no more data than are essential. Long mathematical
developments or proofs, computer programs and extensive bodies of detailed experimental data
should be included in appendices and show the numbers from left to right. In certain cases, to
facilitate reference between text and appendix, the appendices may be bound as a separate
volume.
V. PLAGIARISM AND COPYRIGHT
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION CAREFULLY IF YOU ARE
IMNCLUDING MATERIAL WHICH IS PREVIOUSLY COPYRIGHTED.
THESES/DISSERTATIONS/REPORTS CANNOT BE ACCEPTED IF THE INSTRUCTIONS
BELOW ARE NOT FOLLOWED
1. Plagiarism
Plagiarism is a serious offence and past cases have resulted in dismissal from the graduate
program, revocation of a degree already granted, and outright rejection of the
thesis/dissertation/report. You are well-advised, therefore, to become familiar with the UNB
Senate Regulations on the matter. Plagiarism consists of:
Quoting verbatim or almost verbatim from a source (such as copyright
material, notes, letters, business entries, etc.) without acknowledging this to be a
quotation; taking over someone else's line of thought, argument, arrangement, and
supporting evidence (such as, for example, statistics, bibliographies, etc.) without
indicating such dependence; submitting someone else's work, in whatever form,
(workbook, artwork, tables, etc.) without acknowledgement; representing as one's
own in any academic work submitted for credit in a course or program of study, any
idea or expression of an idea of another.
2. Copyright
If you intend to use previously copyrighted material in your thesis/dissertation/report, you
must include, with your thesis/dissertation/report, letters of permission from the person(s)
or publishing company holding the copyright. This usually involves a considerable
amount of time and should be done well in advance of the submission of the
thesis/dissertation/report as these letters must accompany the thesis/dissertation/report
when the final copies are presented to the Graduate School.
When letters of copyright permission cannot be obtained and, when the omission of this
material will not deter from the sense of the text, the copyright material should be
removed and a page inserted in its place [only for the microfilming copy of the
thesis/dissertation/report.] This page should explain that the material involved has been
removed because of the unavailability of copyright permission; what information the
material contained; and the original source of the material.
If any chapter has already been submitted for publication, accepted for publication, or
published, a footnote to that effect should appear on the first page of the chapter. If the
material is co-authored, permission for the use of this material is required as stated above.
VI. IMAGING SERVICES INFORMATION
The Imaging Services Department have facilities for duplicating theses and other
materials. We strongly suggest that you use Imaging Services to make sure that your
copies are produced to the best quality and under conditions that will guarantee adequate
permanency of such copies in proper storage facilities. For production costs and printing
deadlines, call 453-4843 (Marshall D’Avray) or 458-7907 (Carleton Hall). Before you
can get copies done, you must submit to Imaging Services the “Approval of Duplicated
Copies of Dissertation/Thesis/Report form (gold form). Also, if you take a disk or
memory stick to Imaging for them to print out your dissertation/thesis/report, your
Word document must be converted to a PDF version. This protects your document
from being changed if it is opened by another computer
