This template uses the Tufte class to create an elegant layout for writing essays or other long-form texts. This class features a somewhat controversial wide margin on the right side of each page. The template starts with a clear title and summary then shows how a large amount of text (typical in an essay) looks in the layout. Pages 2 and on show numerous examples of common essay elements including: sectioning, referencing, figures and tables, typography options and a bibliography. Read the text and margin notes carefully as these include examples and instructions for how to implement these various elements in your own essay.
This essay template is best used for literature essays containing mostly text. This is supported by a thin single column layout with clear unnumbered section titles to increase readability. The template contains an abstract, keywords and references, which makes it suitable for college/university essays but these elements can be easily removed for a simpler high school essay. Further examples of common essay components are included: referencing using a bibliography, an inline figure, a table and lists.
I have an essay I need to write and I would like to use MacTeX, however it has been very challenging to get it formatted to all of my prof.'s requirements.If someone could help that would be SO helpful as I am still fairly new to LaTeX, but I would like to get better. The formatting needed is below.
This template is designed for documents comprised of two or more distinct essays, which will each be broken into chapters and presented with their own appendices and references. It is also suitable for single manuscripts wherein each chapter needs to have its own appendices and references presented alongside it, rather than having all appendices/references at the end of the document. (In this instance, each chapter would be treated, formatting-wise, as an essay.)
Until the wider release of the New Workflow for ACM Publications, we ask Microsoft Word users to please use these interim templates which provides the final layout for ACM articles, but do not have any of the functionality built in to capture accessibility and metadata tagging. Please download the interim word template here: Interim layout.docx and interim sample pdf (Please disregard any embedded instructions in the Interim layout during this transition phase.). Please review your conference submission page for further details.
acmart.cls, the official ACM Primary article template for LaTeX, consolidates 8 individual ACM journal and ACM proceedings templates. The [primary] template is available in the following formats*: (last update November 8, 2022)
This new consolidated template package replaces all previous independent class files and packages and provides a single up-to-date LATEX package with optional calls. The package uses only free TEX packages and fonts included in TEXLive, MikTEX and other popular TEX distributions. The new ACM templates use a new font set (libertine) which will need to be installed on your machine before using the templates. Please download and install the libertine font set before writing your paper. Fonts used in the template cannot be substituted; margin adjustments are not allowed.
The new templates enable you to import required indexing concepts for your article from the ACM Computing Classification System (CCS) using an indexing support tool found in the ACM Digital Library (DL) which generates the necessary TeX code once you have selected your terms (and generates XML for Word documents).
The Graduate School offers templates for your review or use. Note that while they are examples of acceptable formatting, they do not represent the only ways to correctly format a thesis/dissertation for the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
We have a few MS Word templates available for your reference. The formatting requirements for theses and dissertations are identical, so these templates should be used by both Masters and PhD students.
There is a Graduate School LaTeX template courtesy of student Darrin Weber. (LaTeX is a highly recommended open source document compiler. You can find information online, including templates for specific journals and professional organizations. Start with The LaTeX Project.)
The SFU Library thesis template is a Microsoft Word file designed to assist students in preparing theses, projects, and extended essays. The template and instructions are .docx files, and have been tested in Word 2011 (Mac), Word 2013 (Windows), and Word 2016/365 (Windows and Mac).
Manuscript Clearance provides templates for both Word and LaTeX into which students can type their text directly and that are formatted according to FSU requirements. The main elements in the three templates are the same, but the layout of the Table of Contents is different. You can select a Table of Contents that lists only the main section headings (which is all The Graduate School requires) or one that also lists subheadings, either numbered or unnumbered.
Please note that these templates are created with general formatting requirements. Specific items such as chapter titles, the number of chapters you include and the content of those chapters is not dictated by The Graduate School.
The way the main body of the thesis or dissertation is formatted is up to you and your committee with the goal of applying consistent formatting conventions throughout the entire document. However, the unnumbered front matter of all UM theses and dissertations must be uniform in appearance. To help you format the front matter, the Graduate School has prepared Word templates by degree for you to use in your document. Please download the appropriate Word file and use it to format the unnumbered front-matter pages of your thesis or dissertation:
Different LaTex templates can be used to change the structure and design of your LaTex documents. For example, there are templates available to create resumes, cv's, articles, theses, and other types of documents. Both Overleaf and Authorea allow you to search for templates shared on their platform. When writing an article for publication, you can also often find LaTex templates for specific publications on the publishers webiste or by contacting them.
Fear not! Many journals and publishers have LaTeX templates that can be downloaded and used in just this way. While these LaTeX files may seem a little intimidating if you have never opened up a .tex file before, most are fairly straightforward and actually include key points from the Instructions to Authors as dummy text in the article or as comments.
Some journals offer their own templates, and researchers who have created templates that adhere to the Instructions to Authors for a given journal often make these files freely available. For example:
This is absolutely not plagiarism, unless the topic of the class was design related. The template used to format a paper is irrelevant to the evaluation of the paper's actual content. Students share format templates and download such templates from the internet all the time. Microsoft Word itself comes with numerous templates for various kinds of documents. None of these are problematic.
For the seminar, you will have to write an essay, two reviews of essays other students wrote, and give a talk about your topic. After receiving the peer reviews of your essay you will have the option to make changes to your paper to incorporate the reviews (this is not mandatory).
Your essay should be 10 to 12 pages. The deadline for the initial and final versions of the essay is shown in the table at the top. It should be in the style of a scientific paper. If you like, you can use our LaTeX templates as a starting point.
We will grade the initial submission of the essay. While there is a possibility for you to improve your grade with the final submission, if the initial submission is graded as fail, you will fail the seminar.
In addition to your essay, you have to submit a video of your talk. You do not need to capture images of yourself speaking - an audio track over slides is sufficient. Your talk should be roughly 30 minutes long and present your topic to the other students.
The reviews of other students' essays should be in the style of a scientific peer review. We will provide some form of rough guideline on what this means (although there is a lot of material on this available online). Note that your reviews do not factor into the grade of the papers you are reviewing. However, they will factor into your own grade. So try to write a helpful and honest review.
After you received the reviews of your essay, you will have the option to submit a final version of your essay. You can improve your own grade by incorporating useful advice you received in your reviews.
This essay offers a comparison of different encodings and presentation of mathematical formulae. The three principal ones are the tag, raw wiki (or HTML) code and "texhtml" templates. The and "texhtml" encoding may have different presentations for registered users, depending on user preferences and personal styles.
