    A thesis by compilation can be submitted in place of a unitary, monographic-style thesis that presents a synthesised, narrative argument. While recognising that a thesis by compilation in its nature differs from the unitary PhD thesis, it must still make an original contribution to knowledge and a contribution to the subject with which it deals that is commensurate with that expected of the unitary PhD. Items included in a thesis by compilation must be closely related in terms of subject matter and must form a cohesive research narrative.
    Crawford recognises that there is a degree of variation between the fields of studies encompassed within the School and acknowledges the importance of maintaining an equality of work conducted by students, i.e., students should neither be advantaged nor disadvantaged in terms of the amount of work required for the PhD by choosing one thesis format over another. The School also recognises that the quality of a thesis is not determined simply by its format but rather by the calibre of its substance.
    Crawford's guidelines assumeprotocol assumes a vital
    Students wishing to submit a thesis in this format should discuss this with their supervisor at an early stage in their candidature and must notify and obtain the endorsement of their panel to present such a thesis at least 12 months prior to submission, and no later than 6 months prior to submission. Submission of a thesis by compilation requires approval by the Delegated Authority (in Crawford's case, the HDR Director). The approval process ensures that the student has received important, discipline-specific guidance on the appropriate quantity and quality of papers for submission as a thesis.

    Economics theses are commonly between 30,000 and 60,000 words in length and take the format of 'three essays'. A 'three-essay thesis' comprises three main papers (each with the general format of intro, literature review, model(s), data, results, analysis, discussion, conclusion) as well as a general thesis introduction and a general thesis conclusion. Sometimes, a separate literature review is included after the general introduction. This format should encourage you to publish journal articles out of your thesis.
    Policy and Governance and Resources, Environment and Development, and National Security College theses are commonly around 80,000 words in length and are presented as a 'book style' thesis. Longer theses are discouraged. How chapters are set up in this kind of thesis varies and will depend on the data or material you collect and how you want to present it in order to 'show' your thesis.

    Word count does not include the list of references. Whether or not footnotes are included is a moot issue and, in fact, might depend on how how much you rely on footnotes to sustain your thesis (i.e., your argument); thus, the over-use of footnotes is discouraged.
    Contact the PhD Academic and Research Skills Advisor if you want to discuss the likely format for your thesis (and certainly discuss the matter with your supervisor) and any other thesis-related issues. We also strongly recommend that you look at some past theses so that you get a sense of what is required. You can borrow past theses from the collection in the thesis cabinet in the PhD Common Room.
