Using styles and the DUO template
When writing large documents, it is helpful to use styles. Styles help with the layout of the document and form the basis for the automatic generation of a table of content
DUO template for Word
We have created a template containing suitable styles for a master thesis. Some departments have their own templates exhibiting a somewhat different style. Information about styles and templates can often be found on a department’s web pages. If you are not using the DUO template or another template, please use styles, at the very least.
If you are using Internet Explorer, it can be difficult to open a file simply by clicking on the link. Right-click on the link and save the file, then open it from the saved location.
DUO template for OpenOffice.org
You may use other word processing programs, such as OpenOffice.org Writer. We have created a template adapted to OpenOffice.org Writer 2.4.1., but have no written guide for how to use it. For more information and to download free software, see www.openoffice.org.
LaTeX is mostly used within the fields of mathematics and the natural sciences. For information about LaTeX from the Informatics department please refer to Informasjon om LaTeX med venner (information in Norwegian and English).
