Organizing Your Dissertation / Thesis
Use one or more appendices for materials that do not pertain directly, but are relevant, to the main text. Examples of appendix material include survey instruments, Institutional Review Board approval, permission forms, additional data, or raw data. The material within the appendices may be in a different font or use different spacing from the main text of the dissertation/thesis.
- Each appendix must have a level one heading, centered and caps.
- Display the appendix caption capped and page number in the Table of Contents.
- Number all pages with the same font and location as text pages.
- Fonts and margins may be different.
- If there is only one appendix, do not use an A after Appendix. If multiple Appendices use letters such as Appendix A, Appendix B, etc.
- Label Figures and Tables with ‘Figure A1’, ‘Figure A2’ or ‘Table A1’ with the Appendix letter as reference for multiple appendices.
- Letters and documents should not contain signatures or personal information. Redact the information.
