Why Formatting?

All dissertations and theses are archived digitally in BearDocs and may be made available internationally via ProQuest Dissertation Services (UMI). Baylor dissertations are requested roughly 21 times a month through this service. (You have the option to restrict access to your work, if desired.) The quality of these works reflects the standards of Baylor University, the Graduate School, your department or institute, and the professors who work with you on this project. The responsibility for both the content and format of your dissertation/thesis rests solely with you and your advisory committee. The Graduate School is here to assist you in doing the job effectively and efficiently.
