Final Project/Thesis/Dissertation Template
Posted by Joseph Timothy Foley on 17 February 2016 10:35 AM
There is an official RU thesis template for the School of Science and Engineering and Computer Science. Other departments are also welcome to use it.
For an on-line template at Overleaf (using LaTeX): https://www.overleaf.com/latex/templates/reykjavik-university-project-report-and-thesis-template/fcwvcgnstrjs This is synchronized regularly with the GitHub project at https://github.com/foleyj2/ru-thesis
Overleaf has a git interface, so you can also do development offline while using Overleaf to store the content.
Be aware that unless you are a paying customer to Overleaf, your content can be seen by anyone who knows the URL. This may be a problem if you are writing a document with sensitive information.
Zotero can be used to manage your references as well: https://www.overleaf.com/blog/174-import-your-bibs-reference-management-tools-now-linked-to-overleaf-number-backtoschool#.WKLwrjuLRpg
The older (and no longer maintained) version can be found at https://www.overleaf.com/latex/templates/reykjavik-university-project-report-and-thesis-template/fwdnpmdvwqcj
The new template from https://github.com/foleyj2/ru-thesis was an effort to simplify and streamline the older code/template from https://repository.cs.ru.is/svn/thesis-template/trunk/ruthesis/
To use the LaTeX template locally, you will need to install additional software as described in the included instructions and at: https://help.ru.is/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/70/0/latex-miktex-mactex-texlive
The old template includes a (in progress) MS Word template and LaTeX template. This set of files include instructions on preparing the thesis and calculator to figure out when thnigs have to be submitted.
The old distribution is packaged up at: https://repository.cs.ru.is/svn/thesis-template/branches/stable/RUThesisTemplate.zip
