I had used amsbook as a starting point for typesetting my thesis.
As you may be aware, amsbook
headings page style is used for content pages, and has a running header containing the section title and page number. Pages which start a new chapter or section use the
plain page style instead, with no header and a page number in the footer.
While my university guidelines said
For the preliminary pages – dedication (optional), acknowledgements (optional), abstract, table of contents, list of tables, graphs, illustrations and preface (optional) – use small Roman numerals (i, ii, iii, iv, v, ...). These may be placed either at the top or the bottom of the page.
For the text, use Arabic numbers (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, ...) starting with page 1 (the first page of the text itself). These may be placed either at the top or the bottom of the page.
It seems that "either at the top or the bottom" does not include the amsbook default. I have been told
I'm writing you to request minor changes to your submission
- Page numbers may not change position but should be located in the same place throughout.
How can I fix this?
