What is done with formatting or layout?

In principle, a master’s thesis, bachelor’s thesis and dissertation are formatted according to the specific requirements of your university, the institute or the publisher. Should there be no concrete or only incomplete specifications for layout and formatting, e.g. Give your bachelor thesis or master thesis (formatting regulations), the thesis is formatted according to the “quasi-standards” defined by us and resulting from many years of experience.

Components of formatting & layout

Homogenization / standardization of appearance according to specifications.

Unification of page margins, line spacing, indents and font sizes.

Correct determination and positioning of page numbers (pagination) e.g. all directories before the content after roman and ab content after arabic numerals.

Creation of dynamically updatable directories (e.g., table of contents from the outline headings, list of figures and table index from the titles of figures and tables).

Existing directories such as list of abbreviations, bibliography or bibliography are formatted as far as possible (but not created, resorted or even reformatted in detail, for example individual data within source or bibliographical references).

Footnotes are formatted, e.g. Line spacing and front indentation unified as much as possible (there is no reformatting within footnotes and no change in the sequence of dates).

Figures and tables are adjusted as far as possible to the type area (figures and tables are not modified or created in detail, but only scaled, if they are compact and consist of either a graphic or a true Word table, images or tables are oversized so adjusted as well as possible or not).
