Tools and tips for thesis authors

Thursday, January 11, 2024 at 1:00pm to 2:30pm

Virtual 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 currently or planning to write a thesis at MIT. Save yourself time and frustration!

Since many topics are MIT-specific, this workshop is limited to MIT community members. The workshop will be on Zoom, and the link will be sent to registrants. Instructors will be available at the end to answer specific questions.
