CTAN Update: uowthesistitlepage

Date: January 12, 2014 6:16:52 PM CET
Thomas Griffiths submitted an update to the uowthesistitlepage package. Version number: 2.0 License type: lppl Summary description: Typesets the title page of your thesis in accordance with the UOW guidelines. Announcement text:
Added \cosupervisor field. The field works the same as supervisor field, but is off by default. The field can either be below the supervisor field or next to it. When next to it the whole block of supervisors is centred as a single unit. The default position is below the supervisor field, but the adjacent style can be tuned on with the horizontal option in the preamble. Added the horizontal option. This uses a tabular environment to put two centred columns in a centred table to place the new \cosupervisor adjacent to the supervisor field. It is off by default but if you want it on just give horizontal as a option to the package in the preamble. Added the report option. Prints a nice little title page for lab reports and the like. Adjusted the declaration and dummy text accordingly. Fixed up the declaration page, reworded it to make it, in my opinion, a bit neater sounding. Also fixed the declaration for fullsubject, report and partialsubject so that it is for the completion of the assessment criteria of \class. Moved the \vspace{biggap} and \vspace*{fill} so that the University and School are at the bottom near the date. Removed some LaTeX crimes: \begin...{centering} end\{centering}\ to \centering, excess return lines. Italicised the requirements. Removed the bold from all but the title. Changed the wording — The degree is now conferred not awarded. Added new pagesize proportional measurements for the margins so that they scale and the title page now works for small pages (tested to A5, 12 pt). Removed lmodern package requirement. Added `Doctor of Philosophy' as the \degree definition if option phd (or PhD) is given to the package.

uowthesistitlepage – Title page for dissertations at the University of Wollongong

The package redefines \maketitle to generate a title page for a University of Wollongong thesis, in accordance with the UoW branding guidelines. The package should be used with the book class to typeset a thesis.

The package also defines a \declaration command that typesets the declaration that this thesis is your own work, etc., which is required in the front of each PhD Thesis.
