Collection Properties

Summary: We have written this book in hopes of facilitating individuals’ success in making Word user-friendly as they write essential components of dissertations and theses (e.g., Tables of Contents, List of Figures) and as they write essential components of manuscripts (e.g., Running head, tables). Following our very detailed set of steps and screenshots in generating required elements of dissertations, theses, and manuscripts should facilitate a more timely completion of such documents. Moreover, having these elements correctly written allows dissertation chairs and reviewers to focus more on content and less on format. We hope that you find our materials helpful to you in your use of Word as you write your scholarly documents.

Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

What are tags? tag icon

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.
