IUP and the School of Graduate Studies and Research (SGSR) offer students a wealth of services during the thesis/dissertation writing process. Students can get help with the writing process, learn how to use popular computer software, resolve network
and security issues, and acquire computer software at little or no charge.
Depending on their chosen field of study, most students follow one of the style guides below to cite research and format their thesis/dissertation. While some style guides are specific to the field of inquiry, students should verify with their departments
the style guide to adopt.
Keep in mind that style guides focus on publishing in the corresponding organization’s peer-reviewed journals. Their standards may differ from thesis/dissertation standards of the SGSR.
