What is this?

uafthe­sis is a doc­u­ment class meant for us­ing with a Univer­sity of Alaska Fair­banks-style the­sis. It would be used like so:


Its de­vel­op­ment web site is at https://github.com/je­sus­ab­dul­lah/uafthe­sis.

Ba­sic Con­tents:

  • uafthesis.cls: The class file it­self.
  • bib_styles/: A few com­mon bib­li­og­ra­phy styles for BibTeX:
    • /agufull08.bst is the 2008 edi­tion of the AGU bib­li­og­ra­phy style
      • unsrtabbrv3.bst is a style writ­ten by one of the au­thors of uafthesis.cls.
  • example.pdf: De­scribes how to use uafthesis.cls while show­ing what it looks like.
  • example/: Con­tains the source code for example.pdf.
  • README.md: This file.


  • master is the main branch, and is based on the 2004 the­sis class.
  • 2006 is a side branch which con­tains Ryan Woodard's 2006 ver­sion of uafthesis.cls which also tack­led the miss­ing "page" head­ers prob­lem. A cur­sory anal­y­sis based on diff uafthesis2004.cls uafthesis2006.cls in­di­cates that my so­lu­tion to the "page head­ing" prob­lem is prob­a­bly bet­ter/eas­ier. How­ever, I may be wrong, and I re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate Ryan's work, so it's in­cluded in its own branch.


If you don't know how to use or need gen­eral sup­port, I would rec­om­mend the fol­low­ing re­sources for learn­ing and ask­ing ques­tions:

For ques­tions di­rectly per­tain­ing to uafthesis.tex, re­fer to example/example.pdf or con­tact the lat­est au­thor via github, twit­ter (http://twit­ter.com/je­sus­ab­dul­lah) or email.

Call to Arms

If you're a UAF stu­dent writ­ing a the­sis in and have some im­prove­ments to make, you should do so and share! uafthesis.cls could hon­estly use some TLC.

If you would like to use Github, here's the pro­cess for sub­mit­ting changes:

  1. Fork this project. There's a but­ton on the up­per-right cor­ner of the main page.
  2. git clone your new repos­i­tory.
  3. Make changes.
  4. git com­mit -m"Some changes I made for great jus­tice."
  5. git push ori­gin mas­ter
  6. Hit me up with a pull re­quest. This is also on the up­per-right cor­ner of the main page.

If you would rather not use git (if, for ex­am­ple, ver­sion con­trol is scary and con­fus­ing), feel free to con­tact me at josh.hol­brook@gmail.com and we can find an­other way of up­dat­ing the class file.

Noth­ing is in­cluded with the orig­i­nal bun­dle, but based on the sources of the orig­i­nal la­tex ma­te­ri­als, it's safe to say (imo) that the project is cov­ered by the Project Public Li­cense.
