Editorial Office



The UF Graduate School Editorial Office, located in Grinter Hall and led by Stacy Wallace, is here to serve students, faculty, and staff with any thesis, dissertation, catalog, or curriculum issues that may arise.  For faculty and staff, the Editorial Office's curricular division directs the publication of the UF Graduate Catalog, coordinating the production of the Graduate School's Academic Calendar, while providing full administrative support and guidance for all meetings of the Graduate Council and the Graduate Curriculum Committee.

For students, the thesis and dissertation division of the office, contributes to the Graduate School's Workshop Series providing guidance and ensuring all graduate students’ theses and dissertations meet UF’s high standards and are ready for electronic submission and digital archiving within the UF Library systems. The Editorial Office also provides and maintains information regarding editorial thesis and dissertation checklists and format guidelines for  the thesis and dissertation submission process to the Graduate School. 

The Editorial Office does not examine or critique content, scholarship, research methods, or writing style; this is the responsibility of the student and their supervisory committee.  However, the Editorial Office can provide referrals to outside editors and formatters available for hire should further assistance be necessitated or desired. In addition, the Editorial Office works hand-in-hand with the Application Thesis and Dissertation Support Center.  The support center, a division of the UF Help Desk, provides practical one-on-one technical consultations to students regarding questions related to the thesis and dissertation formatting templates.  

On the Graduate School’s behalf, the Editorial Office also contributes to the doctoral commencement program each semester, submitting directly to the Office of the University Registrar, while providing and participating in multiple revisions to copy and editing of red-line proofs of the doctoral commencement program each term with them.
