Updated ETDR templates went online in mid-August. Graduate students and faculty advisers should be aware that major format changes were made this summer to the title, author name, and copyright statement in the 2016 templates for Electronic Theses, Dissertations, and Reports. In addition, a new 500-word limit on abstracts (350 previously) was added to incorporate a change in January from the Graduate School.
ETDR templates downloaded prior to mid-August need to be updated to meet the new guidelines. For students who haven’t started writing in those templates, it may be faster to download a new template. To get help modifying an older ETDR template, submit an ETDR Request Form (eID/password required).
