Quality doctoral research occurs each semester here at TSU. Yet, only members of the departments where it occurs and few other members of the University Community know of its significance. In an attempt to disseminate this original research and its seminal findings, the School of Graduate & Professional Studies under the title of DISSERTATION MUSINGS, we will publish the abstracts of each of the excellent dissertations. Beginning next semester, we’ll begin publishing selected abstracts of masters’ theses as well. Enjoy and please provide feedback.
The appendix provides specific requirements on the formatting of research papers as well as theses and dissertations . General formatting requirements include recommendations on paper and margin sizes, options as to the choice of typeface, the spacing and indentation of text, pagination, and the use of titles. Formatting requirements for specific elements include the ordering and formatting of content in the front matter, main matter (text), and back matter of a work. The appendix also includes a description on preparing and submitting files, both electronically and as hard copies.
