Microsoft Word 2008 on a Mac OS X computer will automatically embed your fonts while converting your document to a PDF file.
If you are converting to PDF using Acrobat Professional (instructions courtesy of the Graduate Thesis Office at Iowa State University): The font used in the body of the text must also be used in headers, page numbers, and footnotes.
If you have repeating images that you need to cite more than once, label them with their number and A, B, etc. While no specific rules for the format of table headings and figure captions is required, a consistent format must be used throughout the dissertation (contact your department for style manuals appropriate to the field).
Captions should appear at the bottom of any figures.
Figure and table headings/captions are placed with the same orientation as the figure or table when on the same page.
When on a separate page, headings/captions are always placed in portrait orientation, regardless of the orientation of the figure or table.
The Office for Scholarly Communication recommends consulting the information below about fair use, which allows individuals to use in-copyright content, on a limited basis and for specific purposes, without seeking permission from copyright holders.
Because your dissertation will be made available for online distribution through DASH, Harvard's open-access repository, it is important that any third-party content in it may be made available in this way.
Exceptions are made only for tables and figures created with different software and inserted into the document.
Tables and figures must be placed as close as possible to their first mention in the text.
