Preparation of your Thesis

It is important to prepare a well-written thesis that is free from error. All text, tables, figures and graphics contained in your thesis must be clear and readable in both print and electronic formats. Your thesis must also be suitable for microfilming, photo-duplication or other means of reproduction.

Where research protocol requires anonymity, Faculty Advisors and graduate students are responsible for removing "Identifying Information" from theses. ("Identifying Information" can be used to uniquely identify, contact, or locate a single "person" or can be used with other sources to uniquely identify a single "individual.")

Your department may offer support with writing your thesis. There are also resources available through the library and various workshops.

Students are responsible for ensuring that the final version of their thesis submitted to the Atrium meets accessibility standards according to the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA).  Guidance and resources in support of creating accessible digital materials can be accessed through the Digital Accessibility Resource Centre's Document Resources page.
