We are a group of researchers from the Faculty of Economics and Management. Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia interested in the development of UKM LaTeX-LyX thesis templates. To date, we developed of the templates under three separate but related research grants. Our slogan is:

Let US take care of the FORMATTING, so that YOU can focus on WRITING!

With that in mind, we developed the UKM thesis template to take away the daunting task of formatting theses from UKM postgraduate candidates. Imagine formatting your 250-page Word document to conform to a very rigid styling requirement. LaTeX holds that philosophy, and that is why we use it as the main tool for pursuing our slogan. LaTeX however is definitely not for beginners. Users need to learn basic LaTeX tagging (think of html codes) to write a document. That's where LyX comes in.
