The linked document below serves two purposes. The first is to provide information on how to approach structuring and presenting MSc dissertations 1, the second is to offer a straightforward template for typesetting your work to PDF using org-mode and LATEX.
There is not an MSc “house style”, and you don’t have to use THESE TOOLS but we do need you to submit work that is presented consistently, coherently structured and easy to examine. This document (and accompanying code), should help you to concentrate on presenting your ideas clearly without having to worry unduly about the way things look.
Upload of the latest document to follow shortly. Meanwhile, you can download the following preferences file for Aquamacs to get you starting rendering off org-mode into LaTeX and working with org-ref: Preferences.el
