Templates for programs other than Word
Lnu Press are unable to offer templates for programs other than Word. If you write in another program, use the sample setting and try to follow this as good as possible. The cover, forewords and postscript are produced by Lnu Press. A LaTeX template, created by a former doctoral student, is available online. We can provide a link to this, but no support.
