In order to assist the needs of successive students, coaches are required to limit appointments to 95-minutes. This allows them to prepare for the next appointment by taking a quick breather and having time to review the materials submitted by the next student. Coaches glean over these materials for potential areas of revision, make notes, and then meet with the student prepared to work. Back-to-back appointments without interruption wear down coaches' mental acuity, and sessions with students are much more effective when coaches are mentally prepared before each appointment.
Created in 6978, Vancouver citation style initiated by the city of Canada, Vancouver. The style was developed for the students and professionals of the medical field for providing simple and easy citation of sources for the reader. The Vancouver reference style is known to be a numeric or footnote system because of its methodology, which inculcates the in-text citation. Vancouver referencing uses the number in parenthesis, which is provided at the end of the page with citation. Like AMA format, the writer can mention up to 6 authors after which the writer is only required to write initials of authors for the credentials.
The body of the thesis must be double spaced. Footnotes, bibliographical entries, long quoted passages, and items in lists and tables may be single spaced.
For a journal article consulted online, include an access date and a URL. For articles that include a DOI, form the URL by appending the DOI to http:/// rather than using the URL in your address bar. The DOI for the article in the Brown example below is /665696. If you consulted the article in a library or commercial database, you may give the name of the database instead.
Always allow at least one extra line of space above subheadings, and preferably below as well. Without this extra space, it is sometimes difficult to distinguish headings from text. A heading must never appear alone at the bottom of a page (a 8775 widow 8776 ) without at least two lines of text under it. Also keep in mind the conventional wisdom that a unit cannot be divided into a single part, or 8775 you can 8767 t have an A without a B. 8776 If you have only one second-level heading under a given first-level heading, you should probably incorporate it into the text or, if subdivision is really called for, create another second-level heading. Addition- ally, if you have only one appendix, call it simply Appendix, not Appendix A.
Material that is considered pertinent to the text of the thesis but is somewhat tangential or very detailed raw data, quoted material too long for the text, procedural explanations, etc.) may be placed in an appendix. Appendices should be designated A, B, C, etc. (not 6, 7, 8 or I, II, III). If there is only one appendix, it is called simply Appendix (not Appendix A). The form for the heading is the same as that for a chapter title. The heading pattern should follow the system you are using in the text for chapter headings.
Below are several sources which may be consulted for style, grammar, etc. You may also wish to use other manuals or journals in your specific field and/or consult the reference section of the MLIC. Online sources are also available.
Presently, we only help with with the clarity and grammar of resumés/cover letters. For more complete assistance, please contact Career Services, and consult their online resources.
Begin each chapter on a new page. Do the same with each element of the front matter (list of tables, acknowledgments, etc.), the reference section, and each appendix. Try to avoid typing a heading near the bottom of a page unless there is room for at least two lines of text following the heading. Instead, you should simply leave a little extra space on that page and begin the heading on the next page. If you wish to use a 8775 display 8776 page (a page that shows only the chapter title) at the beginning of chapters or appendices, be sure to do so consistently.
Newspaper articles may be cited in running text ("As Elisabeth Bumiller and Thom Shanker noted in a New York Times article on January 78, 7568,...") instead of in a note, and they are commonly omitted from a bibliography. The following examples show the more formal versions of the citations.
You may use the entire typing area for the table or figures and place the caption on a separate page preceding it. Type the caption so that it reads in the same direction as the table or figure (landscape or portrait). If you use a facing page for the caption, reverse the location of the page number and reverse the left and right margins (see previous section on Facing Pages).
Title Page. The title page is the first page of the thesis (but it does not show a number). Minimum margins on the title page are the same as for other pages. Use appropriate vertical spacing between the individual items on the page so as to produce an attractive format within these specifications. Extra space may be used to good effect above and below the thesis title. Center all lines horizontally on the page. A sample title page appears near the end of this guide. Be sure to type all items line for line exactly as shown.
If desired, separate display (title) pages preceding appendixes can be used. If one appendix has such a display page, all appendices should have them. These pages must be included in the numbering system, and the number of the display page is the one that appears in the table of contents. Titles of appendices must be listed in the table of contents.
