EDIT 2: I successfully defended my thesis on January 12th, and it has since been accepted by the University of Alberta.
EDIT 1: Thanks to everyone who participated! Proof-reading is now closed.
At a certain point you need to say “good-enough”, and although that’s not usually what you want to hear when you are talking about your own PhD thesis, that’s exactly what I’m going to say.
No, the thesis is not yet finished, but a complete draft is now available, and I’d like to ask for your help in proofreading it. So this is how it’s going to work:
- Download the most recent draft of the thesis by clicking this link:
Lockwood-Thesis-v1-0.pdf (25.6 MB)(closed)
- If you have any suggestions, please submit them using this form:
Lockwood Thesis Suggestions(closed)
The form is to keep things simple, and a bottleneck for people who might otherwise overload me. I’m imagining maybe one or two suggestions per person.
For people who have never read a scientific document before, might I suggest that you start on with Chapter 6 – Conclusion, and then come back around to the Introduction.
