Sigh, so I finally realised and managed to find the 2015 version of the UM thesis guidelines!!!
So I’ve updated the
.tex (changes to existing v1.1.2), which includes the following updates:
- Added a
\makecoverandtitlepage now takes an option to output the
relevant statement on the title page
- Chapter headings are now single line, with less spacing after
the chapter title.
- Bibliography entries are now explicitly 0.5 inch indented and
with really wide double spacing between entries.
- Re-ordered elements in
thesis.tex to match the updated guide.
You can download
umalaythesis v1.2 from here, or from Bitbucket and Github, or open it as a an online project on Overleaf.
Just a quick note that updated classes of mmuthesis and umalayathesis has been uploaded at my website.
Based on feedback from a MMU student who submitted her thesis recently, IPS now requires that the Publications List be categorised in to Journal Articles and Conference Proceedings, and that text in the appendices should be 10pt. Please read the updated user manual on how to prepare the Publication List under the new scheme.
Bug fixes of some spacing of appendices entries in the ToC, as well as adjusting the overall line spacing to conform with the expected output by IPS. Font of the cover page now uses Arial Narrow look-alike.
I have developed a LaTeX class and template for writing an UM (University of Malaya) thesis, complying with the IGS Universiti Malaya IGS Guide to the Preparation of Research Reports, Disertations & Theses, for a friend pursuing her PhD there.
The LaTeX class and template files is available at http://liantze.penguinattack.org/latextypesetting.html#umalayathesis. Hopefully this will be helpful to UM students!
