Thesis examples

This page is intended to contain examples of thesis (MSc or PhD). Below are references to various examples.

LyX's thesis template

Since version 2.0 LyX comes with a thesis template. You find it in LyX's installation folder in the subfolder Resources\examples\thesis.

Note: If the title page provided by your university cannot be easily converted to Lyx. It's possible to insert another title page in the form of a PDF file as such. Insert > File > External Material..., supply the path to your PDF file, and select "PDF pages" from the dropdown menu. Then replace the complete first page in the Lyx document by this Evil Red Text: \renewcommand\maketitle{} so that KOMA script doesn't complain about a missing title.

André Miede's Classic Thesis ported to LyX

André Miede's beautiful Classic Thesis style for LaTeX, a true homage to Robert Bringhurst's Elements of Typographic Style, can easily be used with LyX.

The full template is available for download here. The template is self-contained, and uses the local layout feature (meaning you don't have to install LyX .layout files): unpack, open with LyX and compile. You do need to have classicthesis.sty already installed (with TeX Live on Debian/Ubuntu it comes with the package texlive-publishers). The template also contains stylish examples of article, book and CV based on the same typographical principles from classicthesis.sty.

Ph.D. Template Example by Roy Schestowitz

This is a flexible and rich starting point for the composition of a thesis. It adheres to British standards and written to suit requirements at the Victoria University of Manchester.

You can see sample pages at http://www.schestowitz.com/IMG/research/thesis_examples/ and download the LyX file from the site.

Writing a thesis with ThLoria

ThLoria is a LaTeX class intended to write thesis (in French). It now offers LyX support with a limited but sufficient set of layout styles.

You can get the class, layout, and a LyX example file at: http://www.loria.fr/~roegel/TeX/TL.html.
