Tools and tips for thesis authors
Tuesday, January 12, 2021 at 2:00pm to 4:00pmVirtual Event
So it's time to write your thesis. What do you need to know about the process? What tools and experts are out there to help? This session will cover the required specifications for submitting your thesis, writing with the Overleaf LaTeX thesis template, ways to approach your literature review section, tools for organizing your literature, and options for managing and sharing related data and code. We'll review some common copyright questions related to theses, including whether you need permission to use certain figures in your thesis, and what is involved when you want to publish parts of your thesis before or after the thesis is submitted.
This session is appropriate for anyone who is planning to write a thesis or is currently writing a thesis at MIT.
2:00-3:30pm will be a workshop/presentation, and from 3:30-4:00pm the instructors will be available to consult on individual thesis questions.
Registration is limited to current MIT affiliates.
