edengths - LaTeX2e PhD Thesis Template


This is a Latex2e template which corresponds to the regulations regarding layout of a thesis submitted within the University of Edinburgh. It is not official, but conforms as best as possible to the regulation as detailed at:

The University of Edinburgh Academic Services

Please feel free to alter the template to your own liking, but note that the template is made available under the GNU GPL and must be similarly licensed should you wish to release your modified template.


The main file with this package is edengths.tex. It contains information about how to configure the package in the comments. The main package options are entered after the comment "LOAD DOCUMENT CLASS"

For information regarding compiling the package please see the supporting documentation at


This template is an amalgamation of an existing Edinburgh University, Electrical Engineering PhD Thesis class file (jthesis-v1.cls) authored by George S Taylor which was released under the GNU GPL. Code is included from the dmathesis class Written by M. Imran for a thesis according to the university of Durham regulation, which was released without copyright. It also contains ideas (possibly code) from the Princeton thesis class file (PrincetonThesis.cls), authored by Mike Nolta.

Mathew Topper, Eoghan Maguire and Bill Edwards, of the Institute of Energy Systems in the University of Edinburgh, foresaw the need to maintain a more recent latex implementation of the university thesis regulations and thus, this project was born. It is hoped that the template will be maintained by the University of Edinburgh PhD community once released.
