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 :
    • /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.
