I am writing my PhD thesis (physics in a European university) and wonder how to order the "meta-data" chapters.
My university gives very few formal regulations and my adviser wasn't sure.
What I have come up with till now is:
- Titlepage (position fixed by University)
- Statement page that I wrote this (position fixed by University)
- Disclaimer that part of this work is subject to publication
- Table of content
- Table of figures
- The "meat" - the real work
I know this question might come off as opinion based but I believe there are reasons for certain orderings which are based on facts.
