Support includes providing instructional time and materials about writing, formatting and publishing to students. Students can drop by or telephone the office anytime Monday through Friday, or email the ETD coordinator.

Format Review

Format review verifies that the formatting of the ETD follows the editorial style standards of the student's academic discipline and all additional relevant UIW style requirements. Student theses, doctoral projects, and dissertations are submitted for deposit into The Athenaeum, University of the Incarnate Word's digital repository of scholarly work; additionally, dissertations are published in the ProQuest Dissertations and Theses Global database.

All students should be aware of format review deadlines. Format review must be completed and approved by the Dean of Research and Graduate Studies before the student can be granted the degree.
