# Adding blank page

I am new in LaTeX and I am writing my thesis with it. My problem is when a chapter ends up to an odd number, automatically a blank page is added. But it doesn't work for an even page number I tried `\newpage\null\thispagestyle{empty}\newpage` but it makes two blank pages. I would be really thankful if you give me some hints.

• the default behaviour is to ensure that a chapter opening is always on an right hand (odd) page, what behaviour do you need? – David Carlisle Jun 30 '15 at 10:47
• sounds like OP should remove an `openright` option (if it exists) and add the `openany` option to the document class. – Sean Allred Jun 30 '15 at 10:54

• There is no sided option specified in your current declaration, and I'm unsure what the default is. You can try adding the oneside option between the square brackets to explicitly specify this, e.g. `\documentclass[oneside, a4paper, 11pt....` – Dave W Jun 30 '15 at 12:48
• @DaveW The default in `scrbook`, as in the normal `book`, is `twoside`. Edit: and `openright`. – Torbjørn T. Jun 30 '15 at 15:33
