Don't forget to remove personal information from your ETD! Documents such as IRB protocols/consent forms and fliers often include your personal phone number and/or email. Make sure to remove this information so that it does not become public with your ETD.
Many ETD authors write each chapter in a separate document. This is fine! When working with endnotes, though, it can sometimes be difficult to combine all of those chapters into one document.
Follow the steps under Section I below to combine your chapters. If you need your endnotes to appear at the end of every chapter rather than at the end of the document, complete the steps under Section I and then move to Section II.
I. Combining chapters with endnotes into a new document
II. Arranging your document so that endnotes occur at the end of every chapter
In most cases, you can simply save the Word file as a PDF.
You may also use one of the following options:
We recommend using the Front Matter Template, which already has the pagination set up.
Setting up an Auto Table of Contents is a little more work initially, but can make your life much easier. In general, the process involves assigning specific styles to headings. These headings will be word-for-word included in your Auto Table of Contents. When you want to include page numbers, you simply right-click the Table of Contents, select "Update page numbers", and Word will take care of it! This saves a lot of time over updating the pages manually.
Specific instructions are included in the Formatting Tip Sheets (right column).
Line numbers must match the Front Matter Template (FMT) exactly. Here is how to turn line numbers on in Word:
1. Use Select All (Ctrl+A) to select the entire document
2. Click "Page Layout"
3. Click "Line Numbers"
4. Click "Restart Each Page"
5. Line numbers will appear on the left-hand side of your page. These will allow you to follow and match the line numbers as outlined in the ETD Guidelines and the Front Matter Template (FMT). To undo line numbers before you submit your ETD, simply repeat steps 1-4 above, selecting "None" in step 4.
