Project Format Example
This page presents an outline project dissertation prepared with
LaTeX2e. This version uses latex+dvips+ps2pdf to created the final
output. You might prefer to use pdflatex instead, but the included
images would need to be in pdf format rather than eps as they are in
I have prepared a quick example:
Project dissertations may be submitted as postscript to the
via a dedicated FTP server.
Once the file has been sent you have to register the print job
using the old paper mechanism (i.e. you have to physically go to
Computing Service Sales!). The printroom will then perform an
excellent job of both printing and binding your work.
Things to note when generating your dissertation:
- Ensure that there are the correct number of blank pages inserted
so that each double sided page has a front and a back. So, for
example, the title page must be followed by an absolutely blank page
(not even a page number).
- Some people have had problems with using the standard Computer Modern
fonts. Thus, this example document uses postscript fonts (see the
preamble in join.tex).
- Submitting postscript introduces more potential problems.
Therefore you must either allow two iterations of the binding process
(once in a digital form, falling back to a second, paper, submission if
necessary) or submit both paper and electronic versions.
