Adobe Portable Document Format (.pdf) is the format required for submitting theses files for the UWA Research Repository.
In order for us to process your thesis for the Repository, please use the following file structure and file naming conventions:
Please ensure that your electronic copy is complete and accessible for uploading to the Repository.
Adobe's Portable Document Format (PDF) contains several technologies which make the document more accessible to the visually disabled, and generally increase usability for everyone. The most important of these is the creation of bookmarks.
You may want to consider creating bookmarks (similar to a table of contents) in your digital thesis. To do this you need to use the heading styles available in Microsoft Word (such as Heading 1, Heading 2). There is more information on Adobe's Accessibility page.
Theses should also be formatted in accordance with the Graduate Research School's style and format requirements.
You may store the electronic master of your thesis on a PC-formatted CD-ROM or flash drive for transport to the Graduate Research School. If you are off campus please discuss your options with the Graduate Research School.Back to top
