Library Thesis Scrutiny and Consultation

Thesis Scrutiny

The Libraries’ scrutiny of theses is intended to ensure that students comply with the requirements of The UWI Thesis Guide in relation to format, arrangement, abstract,  references and bibliography. Theses are also checked to ensure that the references cited are in accordance with the latest edition of the citation style guide used. The Libraries seek to ensure an awareness of the discipline involved in preparing scholarly publications in a consistent style. The Libraries certify the thesis as acceptable when they are satisfied that the thesis complies with the requirements of The UWI Thesis Guide and recommended style manuals. This process should be completed within 30 days.
