USC Thesis and Dissertation LaTeX Style File
This page is now OBSOLETE, go here instead !!!
Note: Dr. Ed Gatzke provides an example of how to use the USC
Thesis with LyX at lyxthesis.zip.
Download the first three files to the same directory and run
(pdf)latex and bibtex. The .tex file is an example thesis. The
style file adheres to the University of South Carolina Graduate
Guidelines and Dissertation
- And here is how it looks like: uscthesis.pdf
USC Honors students can use the Honors thesis which uses the Honors title page.
Students from the college or arts and sciences that are getting
a Master's degree might prefer this uscthesis.sty with a
slightly different coverpage.
Help on LaTeX
The following are a few recommendations for those who are new to LaTeX:
Beginner's Guide to LaTeX (PDF). A good free introduction to
LaTeX with information on installing it on your PC.
so Short Introduction to LaTeX (PDF). Another introduction
to LaTeX. It has more details on LaTeX markup.
Premier. Yet another introduction.
- TeXnicCenter. An
IDE for TeX. I use Linux+XEmacs but TeXnicCenter plus MiKTex is excellent when on a
Windows machines. NOTE: Make sure you set the default page
size to letter paper (not A4) for ps2pdf, otherwise your
margins will be off when you print your thesis. I've also heard
good things about LEd.
Guide to Latex. It is very nice to have a printed book as
reference. This is a good one for beginners.
LaTeX Companion, Second edition. Now that I am a LaTeX guru,
this is the only book I use. At over 1000 pages, it covers
- The TeX
FAQ. The first place to go if you have a question.
- Comprehensive TeX Archive
Network. The place where all contributed packages are
stored. For advanced users only.
