Using italics, as in the examples above, is preferred, but underlining is still acceptable. Italicize book and journal titles, but not article titles. APA's capitalization rules for titles can be confusing!
What does the final product look like in the TAD format? What is the purpose of the Conclusion chapter in the Journal Article Format?
Does the Department of PRT have a required or preferred format? The Department of PRT believes having alternatives provides much-needed flexibility for doctoral candidates, yet the goal remains that of excellence in education and human development research. The format for disseminating such research should reflect the best choice, the best "match" for the type of study being conducted.
My dissertation chair and my committee have no experience working with the TAD Format. What should I do? Not all faculty members have experienced using this format.
Nonetheless, faculty who wish to learn about the format may do so, through the Department of PRT, and by working collaboratively with other faculty who have directed TAD Format dissertations.
Models are available and experienced faculty can mentor those desiring to master this approach. Traditional Format Strengths Some scholars argue the Traditional Format mirrors the scientific process itself: Many studies have a single focal question that does not lend itself, easily, to reporting in separate manuscripts.
In this case, the traditional format is well-suited for reporting on a single study. Traditional Format Weaknesses The amount of rewriting and reshaping required to publish a traditionally formatted dissertation as journal article s or a book is the major drawback.
Recently, the availability of dissertations on the Internet has minimized the problem of disseminating dissertation findings through publication as dissertations become more widely available. Nevertheless, distribution of the dissertation through electronic means does not usually carry the same weight as refereed publications do.
Journal Article Format Weaknesses The Journal Article Format is inappropriate for some types of research questions and topics that do not involve multiple experiments, various data sets, or different types of analyses.
Oftentimes, authors are not allowed to provide as much detail as they would be able to in a Traditional Format. However, such weakness can be compensated by attaching appendices to the dissertation text, with reviews of the literature, methods or procedures, and analytical techniques, written in elaborate detail for committee members and other interested scholars.
The Journal Article Format requires careful consideration of authorship and copyright issues see these topics addressed in other FAQs.
What type of study is best-suited for the TAD Format? A study involving mixed methods e. A study involving more than one experiment.
In summary, studies requiring more than one journal article to be fully described because they contain multiple dimensions, data sets, sub- questions, or analyses are best in the journal article format.
Determining whether a study is suited for the Journal Article Format requires careful consultation with the dissertation chair and committee members.
As early as possible because the reporting format and the research design oftentimes go hand-in-hand. The decisions regarding format should not drive the research, however.
The format choice should follow the development and framing of the research question s. Can I change my mind concerning the format I chose? It can be challenging to move from one format to another but not impossible.
Does the Journal Article Format generate redundancy? More than one article may have been published prior to the defense with the approval of the committee.
If the article has co-authors, the doctoral candidate must be the primary author, and the role s of the co-authors should be clearly outlined for the dissertation committee. You must request copyright permission from the publishing journal to include the article in your dissertation.
If you do not request permission, you will be breaking U. When asking for permission to include the article in your dissertation, you should notify the journal editor that University of Utah will need to be able to reproduce your dissertation. Make sure you have all copyright permissions before you finalize the proposal and formatting of your dissertation.
