UCF Thesis and Dissertation of LaTeX 2e (v. 3.x)

David Ellis, David.Ellis@ucf.edu

Dissertation writing process:

  1. Provided is an example dissertation (paper.tex) that breaks each chapter into separate files (essentially an early outline of my own dissertation). Modify as necessary.

  2. If not using a LaTeX IDE such as Kile or TexMaker, the manual compilation process is as follows:

    pdflatex paper

    bibtex paper

    pdflatex paper

Included below is the original README from the author who did the majority of the legwork.

UCF Thesis and Dissertation on LATEX 2e (v. 3.0)

Ivan garibay, igaribay@ucf.edu

Important

There is some manual processing required to fully comply with the UCF Thesis Editor. Please read. If you automate this process I would like to know about it.

To compile you thesis:

START

  1. latex paper

  2. bibtex paper

  3. latex paper

  4. Edit the file "paper.out" to include the command "\let\WriteBookmarks\relax" and the word "CHAPTER " on the appropriate chapter bookmarks. Please see the template file provided "EXAMPLE OF EDITED paper.out"

  5. latex paper

  6. dvipdfm paper END

NOTE: The command "\let\WriteBookmarks\relax" included in the "paper.out" file indicate latex to do not update "paper.out". To recompile:

A. [If there are no changes in your chapters] To recompile your thesis you can skip the step 4 from above.

B. [If there are changes in your chapters] To recompile first delete "paper.out", then follow all the steps 1 to 6.
