Published on November 2, by Kirsten Dingemanse. Revised on January 31, Dissertations and theses often include tables. One advantage of tables is that they allow you to present data in a clear and concise manner without having to provide a lengthy explanation in the text. This is particularly helpful in sections such as your results chapter. The steps presented below will help to ensure that any tables you use in your dissertation follow the basic rules and standards.

Keep up-to-date on postgraduate related issues with our quick reads written by students, postdocs, professors and industry leaders. An appendix is a section at the end of a dissertation that contains supplementary information. An appendix may contain figures, tables, raw data, and other additional information that supports the arguments of your dissertation but do not belong in the main body. It can be either a long appendix or split into several smaller appendices. Each appendix should have its own title and identification letters, and the numbering for any tables or figures in them should be reset at the beginning of each new appendix.
Linking Table Titles has multiple benefits. This will allow the List of Tables to be updated without having to manually create and manage entries. This will also renumber the items associated with each label based on the other linked items throughout the document meaning, if you insert a new table between what is currently labeled as Table 1 and Table 2 - the new table will number itself as Table 2 and the table formerly numbered Table 2 will change to Table 3. To link the title of a table, which will allow you to populate and update the List of Tables, click on the item you wish to create a title for to select it. This will open the caption box.
