Oxford LyX Thesis Template

To celebrate the release of LyX 1.6.6, I thought I’d upload an Oxford Thesis Template for mathematics/physics/engineering, based on K. Gillow’s excellent LaTeX class. While it’s tailored to Oxford, with a few modifications I’m sure it could be used for any thesis.

To get it working, you’ll  have to copy the ociamthesis-lyx.cls into your TeX installation, and copy the ociamthesis-lyx.layout to your LyX layout directory. Have a read of the readme.txt for further instructions. Finally, here’s an example PDF.

 

Update (May 2011): I have moved the files over to Github, to open it up to the world a little!

Note: Some people have had issues with the \maketitle, which comes about due to something to do with graphics in child documents. It can be fixed by adding the line

\usepackage{graphicx}

to the preamble (go to the menu document > settings > LaTeX preamble).
