UWI Thesis Guide
The UWI Thesis Guide (2015) formatting guidelines override the APA style (SoE selected style) formatting guidelines for project and theses at UWI
However, APA citing and referencing style should be followed. See APA LIbguide.
Thesis/Project Formatting Guidelines [MEds; MPhils & PhDs]
A Turnitin originality report is to be submitted along with an e-copy of your thesis (as well as accompanying forms).
For the purposes of this Turnitin submission, SGSR suggests that only the Chapters of your thesis (not the preliminary pages, references nor appendices) are passed through Turnitin.
You can access the Turnitin submission page on your Myelearning portal.
