All permission should be obtained in writing and an electronic copy of the correspondence should be submitted along with the electronic copy of your thesis. Further information on third party copyright permissions, including what to do if permission is not granted, is available from the Library's Introduction to Copyright. In the course of their research, students may obtain information from confidential sources, and then face decisions about how to take account of the information, and how to clear it for publication.
The problems should not be put aside until the thesis has been written. It is important to realise that a thesis is legally considered to have been published as soon as it is made available to anyone at all, and therefore it cannot be written as a private document. Treatment of Confidential Sources Given that a thesis is a publication it cannot, without permission, include quotations from, or citations of, documents or letters or oral statements which are confidential.
Students who have obtained confidential information should proceed as follows:. There may be valid reasons for restricting access to your thesis. Usually this will be for a limited period. Below are some common reasons why you may need to restrict access to your thesis:.
All requests for an embargo should be discussed in the first instance with your supervisor who will advise you on how to proceed. Access may, with the approval of the Director of Doctoral Studies, be restricted for a period of up to two years. If your thesis contains material for which you do not have cleared copyright, you may remove that material to separate volume which will be permanently embargoed. However you must make every effort to obtain copyright during the preparation of your thesis.
You will be asked to complete an end-of-programme evaluation form following your submission which will provide an opportunity for feedback to the Doctoral School on the working of your examination process, as well as some overall reflections on your experience as a research student during your time at Sussex. Graduation ceremonies are currently held in January and July. You will be sent details of the next appropriate ceremony based on the expected date of your viva.
Please note there is no guarantee that you will have completed in time to be eligible to graduate at the ceremony you have been sent the details for, as the process of submitting, examining and correcting your thesis typically takes several months. In order to graduate, you must have no outstanding academic commitments.
If you are asked by your examiners to make corrections to your thesis after your viva, these corrections must be completed and approved by the Research Degrees Examination Board before you will be eligible to graduate. Visit Sussex' s Graduation pages for more details about your ceremony.
Homepage Throughout your research degree Regulations and policies The submission and examination process Information for supervisors Information for examiners Forms and letter requests People.
The submission and examination process Find out about the submission and examination process for research students. Temporary binding Three copies of the thesis should be submitted in temporary binding as follows: The pages of the thesis should be held together in a soft cover by an adhesive spine and should not be stitched or have holes punched in them. Note that you should only submit a hard bound copy of your thesis after you have been examined and completed any corrections.
Temporary soft binding is sufficient for the initial submission. The Print Unit York House offers a thermal binding service for reasonable rates. A portfolio of musical compositions and associated commentary should have a spiral binding.
The maximum word length for an MPhil theses is 40, words. The substantial composition should consist of either: A written score to be scored either for larger forces or for smaller forces in which case it should exceed 15 minutes in duration; or an equivalent-scale musical, sonic or audio-visual work for digital media; or an equivalent-scale musical performance of original work, which must be documented on DVD and submitted with the critical commentary.
The large-scale work should consist of either: A written score for larger forces or for smaller forces in which case it should exceed 30 minutes in duration; An equivalent-scale musical, sonic or audio-visual work for digital media; An equivalent-scale musical performance of original work documented on DVD and submitted with the critical commentary. The written component [associated commentary] must be between 20, and 40, words in length. Where poetry is the chosen genre, the creative component will be a book length manuscript and the critical component will be no less than 25, words MPhil or 50, words PhD.
The thesis may also be presented in such a way that the creative and critical components are interwoven to create a distinctive whole. In this instance, the creative and critical components may be seen, for example, as two different but interdependent responses to the same topic; Or the creative component may arise out of the critical component or vice versa and be a vehicle for exploring it further. In either case, the summary for both the MPhil and the PhD shall not exceed words.
Tables of contents, etc. All Figures and Tables are present, inserted in the correct place, have an appropriate title and legend where necessary, and are in final form and appropriately numbered.
A minimum font size of not less than 9 is suggested after insertion of a Figure into the main text of the thesis. The text has been carefully checked to remove typographical, spelling and grammatical errors. As complete elimination is very difficult insertion of a few corrections at a later stage is usually allowed, although please be advised more than one error per page is not considered acceptable.
The bibliography is presented in an acceptable format, your supervisor should be able to advise you further. References are cited accurately, and every reference cited in the text is given in the bibliography and vice-versa. All pages are present and correctly numbered and located. You have correctly set out subject-specific aspects such as statistical analyses, formulae or quotations.

Title Page The title page should include: the full title of the thesis and the sub-title if any; the full name of the author; the qualification aimed for; the name of the University of Sussex; the month and year of submission. Table of Contents A table of contents should be included in the thesis and should list in sequence with the page numbers all relevant sub-divisions of the thesis including; the titles of chapters; sections and paragraphs as appropriate; the bibliography; the list of abbreviations and other functional parts of the thesis, any appendices and the index if provided.
The composite bibliography should be; either numbered consecutively, as far as possible, in the same order as references appear in the text, with numbers only in the text; or be placed in alphabetical order of authors, sub-divided chronologically by year of publication, with authors' names and years of publications in the text. In the latter case publications in the same year by the same author s should be distinguished in the bibliography and the text by letters in alphabetical sequence e.
Referencing system: please use the referencing system most prevalent in your discipline. The same referencing system should be used throughout the thesis. Statement Your thesis or portfolio must include a signed declaration bound into the thesis or portfolio after the title page which states: the thesis or portfolio, whether in the same or different form, has not been previously submitted to this or any other University for a degree, unless you are re-submitting the thesis or portfolio for re-examination.
