3.5  Acknowledgments

(1 or more pages)  optional

This is a statement recognizing the help or encouragement from individuals or institution; that is, those who assisted you in your academic research. The word ACKNOWLEDGMENTS should be centered at the top of the page text area followed by two lines of space. Continuing pages must be headed also, e.g., ACKNOWLEDGMENTS (continued), if the acknowledgements are longer than one page.

Page Numbering: This is the first page with a page number, provided an Acknowledgements page is used. That is, if the last page number of the abstract is iv (even though it is not printed), then the page number for the Acknowledgements page is v and printed in the footer area of the page, centered.

  • This is the first page with a number.
  • All pages after this have a number: pages before the Introduction use lower case roman numbers (vi, vii, viii, ix, x, xi, …) and all pages beginning with and after the first page of the Introduction use Arabic numbers (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, …).
  • Acknowledgements are not included in the Table of Contents.
