# This is the README for uowthesistitlepage.sty Version 3.0.1, 2017-08-11

This Package redefines the \maketitle command for documents and generates a title page for a UOW thesis in accordance with the uow branding guidelines. Use this package with the book class to typeset your thesis (it will work with report though if you do so desire). A copyright declaration is printed on the page immediately following the title page, including the required acknowledgement of the Australian Government Research Training Program Scholarship. The package also provides the \declaration command. This typesets the declaration (see below) that your thesis/dissertation/report is your own work, required in the front of each PhD Thesis.

This package is not a complete thesis template or document class, it only typesets the title page and declaration. This package is designed to do as little to your document as possible. It won't set the margins, spacing, or typeface used in your document. This version is a major redesign of the title page to coincide the re-branding of UOW during 2016. It also adds the copyright statement and acknowledgement of the Australian Government Research Training Partnership Scholarships. Be sure to use the new version of the UOW crest (below). A copy is distributed with the uow thesis template on UOW website. It follows the UOW thesis guidelines and is has a basic setup ready to get you started with your thesis. For those starting off on their own, the following code will give you a document that satisfies the UOW thesis guidelines.
