All information and links that I’ve included are correct at the time of writing (for Oxford University Statistics students) but you should always use the university’s guidelines as your primary resource. But you should have an idea of your planned chapter titles and an overall story for your book.
For more details on the formatting required check out the university’s regulations.
When you’re happy with your proof-reading (you’re still almost guaranteed to have remaining typos) you’ll have to print and bind your finished book!
Your final document is likely to be over 100 pages with thousands of words (or potential typos as you might come to call them). ) using a British dictionary simply type: Your thesis should be set out on numbered, portrait A4 pages.
A great La Te X spell checker is aspell which should already be installed on your work machine. It should be double spaced and the inner (bound) margin should be 3-3.5cm.
Before you start, if you are printing in colour at the department make sure you have enough printer credit by emailing IT (let them know the printer and your Bod card number and they will top you up if necessary).
If you are planning to print your copies double sided you may want to buy your own paper of higher quality than that provided by the department (at least 100gsm).
