Writing Your Thesis in R Markdown
We have a relatively new thesis template that allows you to write your thesis in R Markdown. This might be particularly useful for you if you plan on using a number of R features in your thesis and would like to be able to change your code without having to completely update your old thesis document. It's also easier to look at and understand for many students than the LaTeX option but still uses the same engine to typeset the thesis, allowing for that nice LaTeX look.
Should you wish to write your thesis in R Markdown, please go to this GitHub page for the instructions on how to use the R Markdown to write your thesis.
Please see this blog post for more detailed instructions regarding the R markdown template.
