Preparing the manuscript

Dissertations published by the University of South-Eastern Norway must follow USN's design manual. Your are adviced to start using the template early in the writing process.

The pagination in the published dissertation should be the same as when it is delivered to the committee. Format your manuscript according to the template before submitting to committee.

The document must be in A4 format. Parts of the thesis that are only available in other formats do not need to be changed in order to be printed. The downscaling to 17x24 cm is done at the print shop. Use the Style panel in Word for easier formatting of headings, text, captions and tables of contents.
