This is a Pages template of the maybe nicest diploma thesis that I have found on my political science institute so far. The thesis itself was written with LaTeX but as for myself I do not find LaTeX very comfortable. It manages to make very nice layouts though - especially compared to the usual Times New Roman-diploma thesis that 98% of political science students in Vienna use (unfortunately!).
It does not yet contain a contents section as good as in LaTeX, so you have to care for it a little bit. It is designed for text-based subjects, such as philosophy, political sciene, sociology, history etc. and I do not know how good it would be for a work in natural sciences.
Have fun and help me improve templates by giving me some comments about them!
