format is needed
– Footnotes, tables, overviews, etc. are in either Times New Roman 11 pt. or Arial 10 pt. with 1.0 line spacing.
– The footnote section on each page is made recognizable by a short horizontal line. Should a footnote extend to the following page, this is marked using a long horizontal line. Footnotes are treated like normal sentences and be concluded with a period.
– Page numbers are right-aligned in the footer in either Times New Roman 13 pt. or Arial 12 pt.
– Arabic numbers are used for all text pages and appendices, starting with #1. Latin numbers are used for all other pages, starting with the title page (counted, but not displayed on the title page) and continuing after the text pages and ap-pendices (e.g., for the bibliography).
Title page (Without numbering) Optionally foreword (Roman numbering) Table of content (Roman numbering continued) Table of figures (Roman numbering continued) List of abbreviations (Roman numbering continued) Text (Arabic numbering) Optionally list of appendices (Arabic numbering) Optionally appendix (Arabic numbering) Bibliography (Roman numbering continued)
– The chapter headings in the text should reflect the content of the corresponding chapters. These headings must have the same wording as in the table of content and not contain abbreviations. The numbering of headings should, based on a first level for the main points according to the structure of the assignment, in lower levels be broken down into sub-points, as long as the subject matter requires this. It should be considered that one level of classification is not allowed to be fol-lowed by just one bullet of classification (e. g. given a 1.1 there needs to be a 1.2). Numbering is in Arabic numbers and there is no dot behind the last number (e.g., 4.2 and not 4.2.).
– Numbering and headings in the table of content are left-aligned, whilst the page numbering is right-aligned. For reasons of clarity, it is generally appropriate to indent sub-headings.
– For the title page, please use the layout draft shown in appendix I and adjust it accordingly.
– All theses must contain a declaration of authorship. Please use the layout draft shown in appendix II and add the declaration at the end of your thesis.
The use of abbreviations in the text should be avoided, if possible. However, the use of commonly used abbreviations (which can be found in common dictionaries) is al-lowed. All used abbreviations have to be mentioned in the list of abbreviations and should usually be written out when used for the first time in the text. The list of abbre-viations is written in alphabetic order. Abbreviations out of convenience are not al-lowed (e.g., IaC for Information and Communication).
