G SUGGESTED STYLE MANUALS 22,INTRODUCTION, The purpose of a manuscript is to contribute knowledge to your field of study through the. pursuit of research and scholarship The process includes defining a topic assembling a. committee executing the research writing and submitting a manuscript and defending your. findings This is a complex process requiring sustained work You will take justifiable pride in. this project since it not only satisfies a degree requirement but also positions you within your. discipline and advances your field of study especially when your manuscript is circulated to. other scholars and readers, The Graduate School encourages and upholds the University s standards of accuracy and. soundness of research as well as the requirements of the individual graduate programs regarding. manuscripts In addition the Graduate School provides assistance in the preservation and. circulation of your manuscript through the University Library System and ScholarWorks. The Graduate School requires the electronic submission of all master s theses and doctoral. dissertations Instructions on how to submit your manuscript electronically can be found at. http www umass edu gradschool current students Doctoral dissertations are available to. the public as circulating copies shelved in the W E B DuBois Library or appropriate branch. Master s theses are only available electronically through ScholarWorks. How to Use This Manual, This manual is designed to aid you in the process of submitting your manuscript to the Graduate.
School These guidelines provide you with a quick reference as you prepare your manuscript. This manual also contains further explanations of form and style as well as a wide range of. suggestions and advice that should clarify the rules and explain possible options in areas where. decisions about form and layout are at your discretion It is important that you read the entire. manual before you begin preparing your manuscript so that you understand the format and the. purposes behind the rules, Once you are familiar with the specific regulations you must consult a current and appropriate. style manual recommended by your department and used by your discipline for all other issues of. form and content There is also a recommended list of recent style guidebooks in Appendix G of. this manual Regulations from the Graduate School take precedence over rules found in style. manuals when they differ from one another because issues of clarity and legibility are extremely. important for purposes of digitization and archival permanence For example although you may. prefer a particular font your selection may not be acceptable because it does not reproduce. clearly on microfilm, The staff at the Office of Degree Requirements in the Graduate School is knowledgeable and. familiar with many of the issues you will encounter The Office of Information Technologies also. offers excellent assistance with technological aspects of formatting and organizing your. manuscript It is our experience that students encounter fewer obstacles when they consult with. these offices along the way rather than at the end of their project. CHAPTER II,RULES AND ADVICE FOR PREPARING A MANUSCRIPT. This section explains some of the preliminary information you will need in order to produce your. manuscript, Begin each new chapter on a new page Continue the text to the bottom of the page. unless you are at the end of a chapter, Do not split references in your bibliography always complete an entry on a single.
Do not split captions in the lists of tables and figures Complete each on the same. page Multiline captions must be single spaced and not run into the number page. If you have questions about the acceptability of the quality of the print or the type style you. intend to use take a sample to the Office of Degree Requirements for approval before proceeding. with reproduction,Type Size Fonts Style, For consistency the same 10 to 12 point font is to be used throughout the entire. manuscript,Font must be embedded True Type Form, The font must be easy to read when it has been microfiched specifically choose a font that has. true descenders such as Times Roman Helvetica or Courier Most standard fonts are acceptable. always submit a sample to the Office of Degree Requirements before submitting your entire. manuscript if you have a question about a particular font. The pitch may be either proportional or an established measurement of 10 to 12. characters per inch, Do not vary fonts in the main text of the manuscript. Do not use script italic or other typefaces for numerals except in equations. Tables and figures proper appendices and equations may be reproduced in different size and style. fonts other than those of the main text of the manuscript For further information see Tables and. Figures section, Different fonts may be used for poetry dialogue and other special circumstances Boldface may. be used for headings chapter titles subheadings title and signature pages within footnotes and. bibliographic entries and in tables or figures and their legends Italics may be used sparingly only. for special emphasis foreign words technical or key terms mathematical expressions or book. and journal titles, The margins for each page including preliminaries text appendices reference materials.
tables and charts must not be narrower than the following measuring from the edge of. the paper to type,left 1 1 2 inches,right 1 inch,top 1 inch. bottom 1 inch, The left edge margin must be larger to accommodate the binding process. All typing must fall within the remaining 6 x 9 typing area except page numbers. Margins must be uniform throughout the manuscript, Margins are particularly important for manuscripts because they affect the ability of the. Library to bind your manuscript properly in a permanent manner It is a good idea to print. one page of your manuscript and measure the margins for accuracy. Page Numbers, Page numbers must be centered 1 2 from the bottom edge of each page. Every sheet must be counted for purposes of numbering pages Every page must have a. page number printed on it except the title page copyright page signature page. dedication page and epigraph page,All pages must be paginated consecutively.
The text of the manuscript must be double spaced This includes the Acknowledgments. No large spaces or gaps are allowed in the text, Single spacing is required for footnotes captions and identification text related to tables. figures graphs or other illustrative materials Single spacing is also required for. bibliographic entries and for all block quotations. A double space must be used to separate footnote and reference citations. Single spacing is permitted within but not between items in lists multi line captions. and appendices if done in a consistent manner throughout the manuscript. The general rule for spacing is to choose a consistent format and stick with it throughout the. entire manuscript Irregular or single spacing also may be used for poetry and scripts at the option. of the department and the student, If there are large gaps in the text you will be required to reformat the manuscript. CHAPTER III,USING TECHNOLOGY, Almost all manuscripts are produced using a variety of software packages It is important to. consider the content and length of the manuscript when choosing a software package. A little forethought will greatly reduce the time and effort needed to format a manuscript The. first step is to learn how to use the power of your software Most popular programs come with. extensive documentation and toll free telephone help lines The Office of Information. Technologies OIT offers classes on computing designed to assist people with various levels of. computer literacy Every semester and during the summer OIT also offers formatting workshops. that provide instruction and templates for certain software packages For a list of courses please. contact the OIT Help Desk either in person or by Web page phone or email The following. sections provide more information about computer related resources at the University. The OIT Help Desk, The Office of Information Technologies www oit umass edu operates a Help Desk in Room. A109 Lederle Graduate Research Center lowrise Currently their hours are Monday through. Friday 9 a m to 5 p m but it is best to call them at 413 545 9400 for the most up to date. information, More information is available on the support page http www oit umass edu support workshops.
