Thesis and Dissertation Formatting

Use standard fonts such as Arial, Courier, Helvetica, and Times. The use of unusual fonts may cause problems for the readers and when the document is printed. Use the front-matter template available from the Graduate School to do your front pages (abstract, title, copyright, approval, dedication, acknowledgements, table of contents). Do not combine this file with the body of your text.

Style requirements for ETDs

ETDs are expected to conform to the same stylistic requirements as paper theses or dissertations. The Graduate School thesis and dissertation style requirements are outlined in the  Graduate School Style Manual . Any work that is submitted that does not conform to the rules outlined in the Style Manual will be unacceptable and the student will not get credit for completion of a successful first format check until a corrected and/or more complete document is submitted.

Setting the margins

A minimum left margin of 1″ is required throughout the entire document. However, if you intend to have your work printed and bound a 1.5″ left margin is recommended. Use the following document margin guidelines (or every separate sub-document if your document is divided into several files).

  • left, right, top, bottom: 1″ (or 1.5″ left)
  • header: 0.5″
  • footer: 0.5″
  • left and right margins: 1″
  • header: 0.350″ deep
  • page number code
  • right-justification
  • bottom: 0.5″
  • bottom center

Note:  All the margins for your entire document should be one inch. To set the top heading at 1.75″ for section and chapter first pages, (with your line spacing set to double) hit the Enter key twice. This should give you the correct 1.75″ spacing.

Skipping Page Numbers

To fix page numbers that skip in Microsoft Word, click somewhere in the page after the skipped number. Then go to the Page Layout ribbon, click on pop out button for “Page Setup.”

Pop out button for page setup screenshot

In the dialog box that appears, there will be a row of tabs across the top. Click on the one called “Layout”. Look near the top of the dialog box for a control labeled “Section start.” It will most likely list either “Odd page” or “Even page” (see below). If so, this is the source of your skipping page number. Changing the setting to “New page” should fix the problem. If the control does not say “Odd page” or “Even page,”  do not  change the setting. This is not the source of your problem.

Dissertation Prospectus and Proposal

All PhD students at UGA must present a dissertation on some subject connected with his/her major field of study. The dissertation must represent originality in research, independent thinking, scholarly ability, and technical mastery of a field of study. The conclusions must be logical, the literary form acceptable, and the contribution to knowledge meriting publication.

Persons who serve on your Advisory Committee at the time the dissertation research is undertaken must be faculty members knowledgeable in the areas of your research. The major professor has the primary responsibility for guiding your research, but you should consult all members of the Advisory Committee to draw upon their expertise in relevant areas.

The major professor and Advisory Committee shall guide you in planning your dissertation. To inform your Advisory Committee of your research will write a Dissertation Prospectus, and then give a presentation to your Advisory Committee in which you propose your planned research.

The Dissertation Prospectus is an essay on your proposed dissertation research. This essay should review the pertinent literature, present any new preliminary results you have obtained, and give a clear indication of the direction of proposed research for your dissertation. The essay should demonstrate concise professional writing and should not exceed 30 standard pages of typescript (single-spaced, and in 12-point font).

When your major professor certifies that your Dissertation Prospectus is satisfactory, it must be formally considered by the Advisory Committee in a meeting with you. This meeting is an oral examination during which you present to your Advisory Committee your literature review and preliminary research results, and describe how you intend to complete your dissertation. Your Advisory Committee examines you on the proposed research, considers its feasibility, and advises you accordingly. In rare situations, it is possible that you will be advised to seek another, hopefully related, research topic.

Note that this formal consideration may not take the place of the oral Comprehensive Examination, by specific directive of the Graduate School.

Approval of the Dissertation Prospectus, and of your presentation of its content, signifies that members of the Advisory Committee believe that you have proposed a satisfactory plan for your research study. Approval of the Prospectus requires the agreement of the Advisory Committee with no more than one dissenting vote as evidenced by their signing an appropriate form, which, together with the approved Prospectus, is filed with the Graduate Coordinator.

Job ads with wide pay ranges can deter applicants

Hands using a laptop computer and superimposed icons signifying an online job search.

PULLMAN, Wash. – As more states require employers to list compensation on job ads, a trending strategy to use very wide pay ranges could potentially harm recruitment, according to a Washington State University study.

The study, published in the Journal of Applied Psychology , found that participants in three different experiments were more likely to respond negatively to job ads with very wide pay ranges, viewing those employers as less trustworthy. Prior surveys have found that most people report they would trust organizations that include pay ranges in their postings more than those that do not, but as this study indicates, the way potential pay is presented also matters.

“It’s not just a choice between including a pay range or not – how compensation information is communicated matters, and at least in this study, having a very wide range might send a negative signal to potential applicants,” said study author Kristine Kuhn, a WSU Carson College of Business researcher.

How the ad explained the wide pay range also had an effect. In one of the experiments, participants were even less attracted to the organization if a very wide pay range included a statement that the offer amount would depend on the candidate’s qualifications. On the other hand, a more seemingly objective explanation that the offer would depend on the candidate’s geographic location tended to improve impressions of the employer.

Historically, most job postings in the U.S. did not include numerical pay information, but in recent years several states, including Washington, California, Colorado and New York, have enacted transparency legislation requiring many recruiters to list pay ranges – in part because there is evidence it increases equity.

Seeing an emerging trend in job postings with large pay ranges, Kuhn set up three experiments with different groups of participants to test the effect of this practice. In each experiment, some participants saw ads with wide salary ranges, such as a gap of $50,000 or more between the low and high point, while others saw ads with a narrower gap of around $10,000. The candidates then responded to questions about their perceptions of the organization posting the ad.

Participants in the initial experiment were college students; the second experiment surveyed 350 college graduates using an online panel, and the third experiment involved 245 participants with recent job search experience. Across all three experiments, on average ads with larger pay ranges evoked less favorable impressions of the employers than the narrower ranges.

In the last experiment which had an ad with a very large pay range of $58,100-$152,500, the participants provided written answers about how they viewed the employer. This revealed a high level of cynicism among some who called the wide pay range “dishonest,” “disingenuous” and “ludicrous.”

As one participant put it: “The large range implies that they tend to devalue their employees. I doubt they would actually offer anyone applying for this position a salary at the top range, regardless of credentials.”

There were some outliers, however, who viewed the large range as a positive, seeing the high top number as showing possible “room for growth without needing a promotion to another job.”

Ideally, advertising a pay range should streamline the recruiting process, Kuhn said, so the recruiter and applicant on are on the same page. However, some organizations, especially smaller ones, may not have well-defined job structures, so the large pay ranges in job ads may indicate they want to tailor the position to the candidates who respond.

“There probably is a goldilocks area of a just right pay range where it gives the employer some flexibility without sending negative signals to prospective applicants,” said Kuhn. “Also, while from a legal standpoint they may be required to advertise an expected pay range, employers and job candidates can still negotiate.”

Take a road trip to Savannah, Georgia: where to eat, stay and play

  • Michelle Stark Times staff

SAVANNAH, Ga. — Magic fills the air in the city of Savannah.

It drifts through the public squares that mark intersections downtown, and the old churches and bell towers that surround them. It hangs along the waterfront, embedded in the historic cobblestone streets and even the new shops and hotel that have revitalized the area. It buoys the people who come here for a good time, the artsy college students and curious tourists and rowdy bachelorette parties alike.

And lucky for us in Tampa Bay, Georgia’s coastal city is a manageable road trip away, pretty much the shortest amount of time you can drive in a car and end up in another state.

There’s rarely a bad time to visit this town dripping with Southern charm. Home to the Savannah School of Art and Design, the city is a creative enclave brimming with music and art. The weather is mild, like Tampa Bay, and the downtown Historic District is walkable and affordable. Savannah is perfect for a long weekend, small enough that you can see most of it in three or four days, but with plenty to do to keep it interesting.

And there are lots of different trips you can have here. Traveling with kids? Historic squares and a big playground in the middle of the city, not to mention the new Plant Riverside District, offer plenty of ways to entertain little ones. Coming here with friends who want to let loose? Savannah’s open container policy in its Historic District means you can get cocktails to-go, and the city offers raucous nightlife and daytime window shopping in equal measure.

Here are some suggestions for how to plan a trip to Savannah.

Take a stroll through the Historic District: Making your way through the Historic District on foot is a really nice way to spend a day. Start at River Street, and walk the cobblestone streets that run parallel to the Savannah River. If you’re lucky, you’ll see a giant cargo ship cruising down the water. From there, head up one of the old sets of stairs to Bay Street, and make your way into the downtown core. Peruse Broughton Street, a main shopping thoroughfare that’s home to Savannah icons like the Savannah Bee Company (try the mead tasting in the back!) and Leopold’s Ice Cream. From there, find the perpendicular Bull Street and head west away from the water. This is one of my favorite paths because it takes you through many of Savannah’s 22 historic squares, most of which date back to the 1800s. You’ll pass tons of shops, cafes, historic mansions and probably an Old Town Trolley, which offers lovely leisurely tours if your feet get tired.

Visit the Plant Riverside District: This 4 ½-acre entertainment district opened in 2020 after years of development that sought to revitalize Savannah’s historic waterfront. It’s a whole new look for River Street, whose uneven cobblestone paths and kitschy shops are preserved farther down the river. This new area has a Disney Springs feel, with more than a dozen restaurants, three rooftop bars and the JW Marriott hotel, a sprawling three-building complex that once housed a power plant dating back to the 1880s. Grab dinner at Graffito, a family-friendly Italian restaurant with solid pizza, or head to the 21-and-up Myrtle and Rose rooftop bar for small plates, cocktails and crazy cool views of the Savannah River.

Play at Forsyth Park: If you’ve got kids in tow, this is an ideal place to let them expend lots of energy. The 30-acre park in the middle of the city is shaded by large trees covered in Spanish moss and home to recreational activities like tennis and basketball courts, grassy fields and an amphitheater. The centerpiece of the park is the multi-tiered fountain, which was built in 1858. There’s a large playground here too, and don’t miss the cafe just off the park (more on that below) for breakfast, lunch and to-go cocktails.

Where to eat and drink

The Grey: Chef Mashama Bailey’s restaurant, set in a restored 1938 Greyhound Bus Terminal, opened nearly 10 years ago to much acclaim — and still draws a line of tourists and locals waiting to get inside at 5 p.m. I’ve been twice over the years, one time with reservations and a full, exquisite dinner, and the other on a recent trip as part of the nonreservation diners waiting to get in. This time, I sat at the bar, an uber cool space in the front of the restaurant that faces out onto Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. Bailey’s food is familiar but innovative, Southern classics with African influences that are often like nothing else you’ve ever tasted. They only offer a few food items at the bar, but they’re perfect: a cheese plate with signature benne crackers and homemade jam, oysters that change daily and dessert, in my case a butterscotch pudding that reminded me of the Werther’s Originals my grandma used to pull out of her purse. This is the kind of dining experience you plan your entire trip around. 109 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. 912-662-5999. thegreyrestaurant.com .

Vinnie Van GoGo’s: An iconic Savannah joint, this cash-only pizza spot is located in City Market, a historic marketplace that has served as a central gathering place for hundreds of years. These days, it’s home to restaurants and shops and bars teeming with nightlife revelers grabbing cocktails to-go. Vinnie’s is a perfect casual stop after a night (or day) of drinking, but also a family-friendly place that draws its fair share of local college students. It’s New York-style pizza all the way here, large slices or whole pies with a thin but hearty crust that you can load with toppings. 317 W. Bryan St. 912-233-6394.

Collins Quarter: The original location in the heart of downtown (51 Bull St.) is worth a visit, a prime breakfast and brunch spot with a full bar that’s also open for dinner. But the newer location near Savannah’s Forsyth Park (621 Drayton St.) is all the rage. Nestled in the park right next to a large playground, it’s open for breakfast and lunch, with a takeout window that serves coffee and pastries and a cart out front that offers cocktails, beer and wine. It’s an ideal scenario on a busy weekend when there’s a long wait for a table: Order a mimosa, take a stroll around the park, and loop back just in time to get your fill of crab cake Benedicts, Turkish eggs, and chicken and waffles. thecollinsquarter.com .

Little Duck Diner: A sweet spot in the heart of downtown, this place is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner but shines at breakfast, when the Flap Crab omelet and the Risotto Stacker (fried cheesy risotto, sausage and a sunny-side up egg) offer fun spins on classic fare. It opened in 2017 with a “vintage chic” aesthetic, complete with a black-and-white tile floor, bar stools and a marquee board listing the day’s milkshake flavors. 150 W. Saint Julian St. 912-235-6773. littleduckdiner.com .

Other suggestions: Treylor Park for Southern comfort fare; The Olde Pink House for cocktails and live music; Flying Monk Noodle Bar for steaming bowls of ramen; Gryphon for afternoon tea.

Where to stay

JW Marriott Savannah Plant Riverside District: This 419-room hotel anchors the new Plant Riverside District right along Savannah’s waterfront. It’s housed in three different buildings, all with distinct vibes: the Power Plant, which pays homage to the historic plant that used to reside here; the romantic and dramatic Three Muses; and the maritime-themed Atlantic. The towering main lobby is a stunner, bursting with colorful glass art, shops and art galleries, and historic touches like the original power plant’s switchboard. There are also dozens of hundreds-year-old geodes scattered throughout that imbue a real sense of drama. But nothing’s more dramatic than the chrome-dipped dinosaur hanging above, a replica of one of the largest dinosaurs ever discovered. 400 W. River St. 912-373-9100.

Hampton Inn & Suites Savannah Historic District: For something more affordable but still in the thick of it, try the Hampton Inn located on the busy Oglethorpe Avenue. It’s just a couple of blocks from City Market, and still very much centrally located. It’s a totally serviceable spot to spend a weekend. 603 W. Oglethorpe Ave. 912-721-1600.

Kimpton Brice Hotel: This stylish spot is located on Bay Street, quite close to the waterfront. Despite the prime location, it feels calm, with its outdoor pool and surrounding courtyard offering a charming refuge from the city when you need a minute to rest. After a recent renovation, rooms have a hip, modern feel, and its Italian restaurant Pacci provides solid on-site dining. 601 E. Bay St. 912-238-1200.
