FYP Report Checklist

1. 1.1

Appearance Formatting 1.1.1 Typing and Printing


Microsoft Word should be used for typing. All final copies of the thesis should be printed on a laser printer for quality printing. Use A4 paper of 80 grams.

1.1.2 Typeface, Typing Quality and Font Size


The entire text of the thesis, including headings and page numbers, should be of the same font or typeface. Times New Roman should consistently be used throughout the report. Computer printouts should be clear and of high quality.

a.

Font Size

The body text size is 12 point for Times New Roman. Text should not be scripted or italicized except for: scientific names, terms in a different language, and quotations

Footnotes or caption for tables or figures should be 10 point.

b.

Headings and Subheadings

These should be in bold print in font size 14 point.

c.

Margins

Margin specifications are meant to facilitate binding and trimming. The stipulated margins for the general text (body of report) are as follows:

Top edge Right side Left side Bottom edge

: 3.0 cm : 2.5 cm : 4.0 cm : 3.0 cm

All information including text headings, footnotes and illustrations should be within these margins.

d.

Paragraphs

A new paragraph at the bottom of a page must have at least two full lines of text: if not, it should begin on the next page. Use 1.5 spaces between lines and 3 spaces between paragraphs. The following, however, should be single-spaced: explanatory footnotes quotations longer than three lines in a block reference or bibliography (except between entries) multi-line captions (tables, figures. plates) appendices, such as questionnaires, letters

e. Page Numbering
Every sheet of paper in the manuscript except the title page, supervisors approval and students declaration must be numbered. The title page is 'i' but not numbered. The supervisors approval is 'ii' but not numbered. students declaration is 'iii' but not numbered. The

Preliminary pages (all pages

before the body of the text) such as acknowledgments, abstract, table of contents, list of tables, list of figures, and list of abbreviations (optional) are to be numbered in lower case Roman numeral (iv, v, vi, etc). The main text pages are to be numbered in Arabic numerals (1, 2, 3, etc) and all pages must be numbered.

The page number must be centered to the text, not to the page and must be placed at the bottom of the page. Since the bottom margin is 3.0 cm, the page number must appear 1.3 cm from the bottom of the page. No dashed, periods, 2

underlining or other marks should appear before, after or under the page number.

1.2

Equations
Equation must be done in Microsoft Equation Editor. The equation

variables written in italic and number should be Arabic numerals enclosed in parentheses on the right hand margin. They should be cited in the text, for example, Eq. (1) and Eqns. (1) (2). Equations start from the left. Punctuate equations with commas or periods when they are part of the sentence. For example,

y = 2 x + 3 , and

(1) (2)

x = t2 4 .

Text. ... ...

1.3

Tables
Tables must be properly centered on the page within the prescribed margins. Each table must have a reference number (in Arabic numeral) and a caption. It may be useful to group tables in each chapter together and to number them in sequence. For example, tables found in Chapter 1 should be numbered Table 1.1, Table 1.2, Table 1.3, and so on.

The word Table, its number and its caption (10 point) appear above the table. If any table continues to the following or subsequent pages, the top line of the page reads. For example: Table 1.1 continued. The caption is not repeated. If a table is taken from another source, the reference must be cited properly at the bottom of the table(10 point).

1.4

Figures
Figures may be illustrations, graphs, maps, charts and diagrams - in fact, anything that is neither script nor table. The word Figure, its number (in Arabic numeral), and its caption (10 point) are placed below the figure. A figure should not normally extend beyond one page. However, if it does, the same guidelines for tables should be followed. Figures should be

grouped and numbered in sequence. For example, Figure 3.1 should be located in Chapter 3.

2.4

Supervisors Approval
Please see Appendix C.

2.5

Declaration
Please see Appendix D.

2.6

Acknowledgements
This section may include appreciation of all those who assisted the author in the preparation of his/her final year project, particularly the supervisor(s). Please see Appendix E.

2.7

Abstract
The heading of ABSTRACT appears centred and in full capital letters beneath the top margin (See Appendix F). The abstract consists of a brief description of the problem a brief description of the methods or procedures used a condensed summary of the findings of the study

The length of the abstract should be between 250 to 300 words.

2.8

Table of Contents and Lists of Tables/Figures/Abbreviations


A table of contents (TOC) shows readers the starting page number of each major section and subsection in the report (see Appendix G). The topics to be covered in the report must be carefully selected and organized. The flow of the topics to be presented is very important in order to guide a relatively novice reader in understanding the whole report. To an experienced reader, the TOC gives a quicker way of finding interested information.

With the similar purpose as the TOC, the lists of tables/figures/abbreviations are to enable readers to find the illustrations, diagrams, charts, tables and abbreviation explanation in the report. Tables/Figures must be numbered consecutively in order of appearance (See Appendices H, I, and J).

2.9

Body of the Text


The MAIN BODY TEXT should normally be divided into chapters such as (See Appendix K): Introduction Theoretical Background or Review of Literature Method of Investigation or Detailed of the Design Presentation of Data/Simulation/Testing Discussions/Evaluation on Findings/Design Conclusions and Recommendations

a.

Introduction

An introduction is necessary to give a background, an overview of the overall topic and the objectives of the final year project. The motivation to the initialization of the project can be included. Its content should be general enough to guide the reader gracefully into the subject materials.

b.

Theoretical Background or Literature Review


Typically, this involves the historical background of the

This section is to discuss the theoretical aspects leading to the implementation of the project.

theories published in the research literature and the questions or ambiguities arose in these theoretical works. Citations for the sources of information should be given in the standard APA formats.

Explore this background to prepare the readers to read the main body of the report. It should contain sufficient materials to enable the readers to

understand why the set of data are collected, and what are the salient features to observe in the graph, charts and tables presented in the later sections. Avoid reporting any irrelevant issue. Depending on the length and

complexity of the report, the introduction and the theoretical background may be combined into one introductory section/chapter.

c.

Research Methodology / Research Design


Experimental research Design synthesis of hardware/software Development and application of theory

The project may be in one of the following nature:

Depending on the nature of the project, the approach can be described in one or more chapters. For experimental research, explanations shall be given with regard to the equipment used to conduct the experiment, the function of each apparatus, how the configuration works to perform a particular measurement, sources of errors and how to minimize them, materials and ways to produce the sample. For design synthesis of hardware/software, detailed descriptions on
the techniques used shall be given. For development and application of theory to solve a particular problem, the techniques used shall be explained in detail. Mathematical derivations that are too lengthy shall be given in appendices. Experiments conducted to verify the theory shall also be documented.

10

d.

Presentation of Data

The data should be organized and presented in the forms of graphs, charts, or tables in this section, without interpretative discussion. Raw data which may take up a few pages, and most probably wont interest any reader, could be placed in the appendices.

e.

Discussion on Findings

The interpretation of the data gathered can be discussed in this section. Sample calculations may be included to show the correlation between the theory and the measurement results. If there is any discrepancy between the theoretical and experimental results, an analysis or discussion should follow to explain the possible sources of error. The presentation of data and the discussions may also be combined into one chapter.

f.

Conclusion and Recommendations

The conclusion section closes the report by providing a summary to the content in the report. It indicates what is shown by the work, what is its significance, and what are the advantages and limitations of the information presented. Additional discussion shall not be added. The potential

applications of the results and recommendations for future work may be included.

2.10 References
Every reference quoted or cited in the report must be included in the list of references and sorted according to authors alphabet. Citation is required for statement which expresses a fact that goes beyond the common knowledge of the art. See Appendix L for detail explanation on references.

11

2.11 Appendices
This section contains lengthy materials which are not suitable to be put inside the main text, for example raw data, equipment and computer programmes.

2.12 Final Submission


After the project evaluation, students are expected to submit ONE copy of Hard Binding with attached CD and TWO extra copies of CDs. The CD contents should consist of poster presentation, presentation slide, full report and project.

Personal Communications Personal communications may be things such as email messages, interviews, speeches, and telephone conversations. Because the information is not retrievable they should not appear in the reference list. They should look as follows: Example: J. Burnitz (personal communications, September 20, 2000).

Reference Citations in Text To refer to an item in the list of references from the text, an author-date method should be used. That is, use surname of the author (without suffixes) and the year of publication in the text at appropriate points.

Example: Researchers have indicated that more is expected of students in higher education (Hudson, 2001) and secondary education (Taylor & Hornung, 2002).

One author lssac (2001) indicated in his research.. In a recent study, research indicates (Isaac, 2001)

Two or more authors When a work has two authors, always cite both names every time the reference occurs. For works with three, four, or five authors, cite all authors the first time the reference occurs. In subsequent citations, include only the last name of the first author followed by et al.

When a work has no authors Cite in text the first few words of what appears first for the entry on the list (usually the title) and the year.

Specific parts of a source

Appendix L

(Yount & Molitor, 1982, p. 19) (Cooper, 1983, chap. 4) Works with no author (New Student Center, 2002)

Some general rules for APA reference pages: Begin the reference list on a new page. The page begins with the word References (Reference if there is only one), centered in the top, middle of the page, using both upper and lower case. If the references take up more than one page, do not re-type the word References on sequential pages, simply continue your list. Use one space after all punctuation. The first line of the reference is flushed left. Lines thereafter are indented as a group, a few spaces, to create a hanging indention. Double space between citations. Single space in the citations. Use italics for titles of books, newspapers, magazines, and journals. References cited in text must appear in the reference list; conversely, each entry in the reference list must be cited in text. Arrange entries in alphabetical order Give in parentheses the year the work was published. For magazines and newspapers, give the year followed by the month and date, if any. If no date is available. write (n.d.) Give volume numbers for magazines, journals, and newsletters. Include the issue number for journals if and only if each issue begins on page 1.
