What's Your Question?
How to Identify a Font Online
If you’ve ever paid even a little attention to the appearance of typed letters, you’re noticing various fonts. Different computer fonts have names, and you can identify them by their features. Start by learning more about fonts and how to distinguish them.
What Is a Font?
Put simply, a font is a stylized typeface. A specific font comprises letters, numbers and symbols that all feature the same defining graphical embellishments or style. Fonts can enhance documents or websites. Different tones and applications demand different types of fonts to match or coordinate. Fonts vary in their design, weight and point size. You may wish to vary fonts depending on the purpose of the text. For example, when you want to enhance readability, you’ll want to choose a simpler font. If you’re trying to create a specific tone in a website or document, such as old-fashioned or fancy, you can choose a font that evokes these tones with its stylistic details.
Identify a Font by Characteristics
You can identify a font in several ways. Fonts tend to have key features that place them into specific groups. For example, fonts with serifs have spikes and slabs at the ends of their lines. Fonts without these spikes or slabs are known as sans-serif fonts.
Check these features of a font to identify it. Note the point to which the uppercase “J” descends, whether it sits on the baseline or goes under it. Look at the dollar sign in a font to see if it has a single line or a double line going down through the “S.” Some dollar signs have lines that don’t cross the “S.” Look at the uppercase “Q” to see whether the tail crosses into the circle, touches it or sits below it. Check the uppercase “G” to see what the foot looks like and whether it’s pointing down or forward. Notice whether the number “4” is open or closed at the top. Check the ampersand to see whether it looks traditional, closed, open or like an “Et” that’s open or with a gap. Notice whether the uppercase “M” has a center vertex that touches the baseline or is above the baseline. Check to see if the center bar of the uppercase “P” touches the vertical line or crosses it. Find out if the uppercase “U” has a stem. Look at the lowercase “f” to see if it has upper and lower loops or an upper or lower only.
Use a Free Font Identifier
Take a screenshot or a picture of a font you like and upload it to a free font identifier online. Simply upload the image in either JPG or PNG format, agree to terms of service and click a button to have the identifier scan the image and choose a font that matches the appearance.
Find the Designer or Publisher
If you can find the designer or publisher of a font, you may be able to use a font identifier to figure out the specific font. Enter the name of the designer or publisher into the search field and click “go.” You’ll get a list of fonts produced by the designer. This can enable you to identify the font in question.
Search for Fonts by Similarity
If you know the font you want to identify is similar to another font, you can search for fonts by similarity. For example, if you’re looking for a font that’s similar to “Boho a Gogo,” enter this name into the search tool. You can then get a list of fonts that have similar styles, sizes and lines, such as “Dazzle,” “Stripes” and “Radial.”

Great fonts for a PhD thesis – and terrible ones
There are thousands of fonts out there – which one should you choose for a great-looking PhD thesis? I will explain the differences between serif and sans-serif fonts, what ligatures are and why you shouldn’t use that fun free font you found on the internet.
Great fonts for a PhD thesis: Serif vs. sans-serif
As I explained in my Ultimate Guide to preparing a PhD thesis for printing , there are two basic kinds of fonts: Serif fonts and sans-serif fonts. Serif fonts have small lines – serifs – at the ends of all lines. Sans-serif fonts don’t have those lines. Compare these two, Palatino Linotype and Arial:
Serifs guide the reader’s eyes, making sure that they stay in the same line while reading a printed text. In turn, your reader’s brain won’t get tired so quickly and they can read for longer.
But there is another feature that many serif fonts have. Look at these three (which are all great fonts to use in your PhD thesis, btw):
If you look closely, you will see that serif fonts often have different stroke thicknesses within every letter. This is called “weight contrast”. A subtle weight contrast further improves legibility of a printed text. Hence, I recommend you use a serif font with a bit of a weight contrast for your main text.
Which serif font should you choose?
But whatever you do, this one thing is extremely important: Choose a font that offers all styles: regular, italics , bold , and bold italics . Since these four styles all need to be designed separately, many fonts don’t offer all of them. Especially bold italics is absent in most free internet fonts and even from many fonts that come with your operating system or word processor.
Also: In your bibliography and in-text citations (if you go with an author-year citation style) you will have to display author’s names from all over the world. Many of them will contain special letters. For example German umlauts (ä, ö, ü), accented letters used in lots of of languages, i.e. French or Spanish (à, é, ñ, etc.), and dozens of other special letters from all kinds of languages (ç, ı, ł, ø, etc.). Be aware that only a very limited number of fonts offer all of these!
If you have mathematical equations in your thesis that require more than +, – and =, your font choices are limited even further . After all, the vast majority of fonts do not offer special operators.
As you can see, these criteria severely limit your choice of font for the main text. Needless to say, they rule out free fonts you can download from dafont.com or 1001fonts.com . That is why I urge you to go with a classic font. To make things easier for you, here is a table with serif fonts that offer all the characters you could dream of:
Failsafe serif fonts for your PhD thesis
These fonts are heavily based on fonts that have been in use since the invention of the mechanical printing press in the 15th century. Hence, these types of fonts have been tried and tested for more than 500 years. Hard to argue with that!
But which of these fonts is The Best TM for a PhD thesis? That depends on how much text you have in your thesis vs. how many figures, tables, equations, etc. As I have noted in the table, fonts have different widths. Look at this image showing the same text in Times New Roman (TNR), Cambria, and Sitka Text; all at the same size:
Hence, setting entire pages of text in TNR will make the page look quite dense and dark. So, a thesis with a lot of text and few figures is best set in a wider font like Sitka Text. On the other hand, if you have a lot of figures, tables, etc., TNR is a good choice because it keeps paragraphs of text compact and therefore the page from looking too empty. Medium-width fonts like Cambria are a good compromise between the two.
To see some of these fonts in action, check out this example PhD thesis where I show all sorts of font combinations and page layouts.
When to use a sans-serif font in your PhD thesis
This covers serif fonts. But which sans-serif fonts are great for your PhD thesis? And when do you use them?
As mentioned above, serif fonts are good for the main text of your thesis. But titles and headings are a different story. There, a sans-serif font will look very nice. Plus, using a different font in your headings than in the main text will help the reader recognize when a new section begins.
Here are some examples for good sans-serif fonts:
Each of these fonts – Futura, Franklin Gothic Book, and Gill Sans – are wonderful for headings in a PhD thesis. Why? Because they are easily readable, well-balanced and don’t call undue attention to themselves. Also, they have many options: regular, light, medium, bold, extra bold, including italics for all of them. And most operating systems or word processors have them pre-installed.
The criteria for heading fonts are not nearly as strict as those for main text fonts. If you have Latin species names in your headings, make sure the font offers (bold) italics. If you need to display Greek letters in your headings, make sure the font offers those. Done.
However, there are some criteria for headings. Just for fun, let’s have a look at some sans-serif fonts that would be a bad choice for a thesis:
I’d like to explicitly state that these are wonderful, well-designed fonts – you just shouldn’t use them in a scientific document. Heattenschweiler is too narrow, Broadway has too much weight contrast and Aspergit Light is too thin. All of these things impair readability and might make your opponents squint at your headings. Of course, you will want to do everything in your power to make the experience of reading your thesis as pleasant a possible for your opponents!
How are these fonts great for my PhD thesis? They are boring!
Why yes, they are, thanks for noticing!
Seriously though, the fonts not being interesting is the point. Your PhD thesis is a scientific document showing your expertise in your field and your ability to do independent research. The content of your thesis, the science, should be the sole focus. A PhD thesis is not the place to show off your quirky personality by way of an illegible font.
However, you can infuse your personality into your thesis cover and chapter start pages. There, you can use a fun font, since you probably don’t have to display any special characters.

Don’t use fonts made for non-Latin alphabets (Cyrillic, Hanzi, etc.)
Every computer nowadays comes pre-installed with a number of fonts made for displaying languages that don’t use the Latin alphabet (Latin alphabet = The alphabet in which this very article is displayed). Prominent examples for languages that don’t use the Latin alphabet are Asian languages such as Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Thai, etc. Other examples include the Arabic, Brahmic, and Cyrillic script. But there are many more fonts for a myriad of non-Latin alphabets. These fonts were optimized to make the characters of their languages easily readable.
However (and this is why I’ve written this entire section) they usually also contain Latin characters to be able to display the occasional foreign word.
Hence, you might want to honour your roots by using a font in your thesis that was made for your native language, by someone from your home country. It is tempting, because all the Latin characters are there, right? I completely understand this wish, but I strongly advise against it since there are some serious drawbacks.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not throwing shade on these fonts, they are fantastic at what they were made for. Displaying long stretches of text in the Latin alphabet, however, is not one of those things. Let me explain why.
They don’t offer all necessary characters
Firstly, fonts made to display languages with a non-Latin alphabet contain the bare minimum of Latin characters. That is, the basic letters and the most important punctuation marks. Hence, they don’t have all those math operators and special characters I talked about in the section about serif fonts.
Also, the Latin characters in these fonts are usually sans-serif, so less suitable for long text.
But let’s say the non-Latin alphabet font you chose does offer all special characters and has serifs. Unfortunately, they are still not suitable to use in your PhD thesis, for the following reasons:
They are often too small or large for use with greek letters
Do you mention β-Mercaptoethanol or α-Histidin antibodies in your Materials and Methods? Or any other Greek letter? Since Latin characters are scaled differently in fonts made for non-Latin alphabets, Greek letters will not be the same size as the rest of the text anymore. For example, look at this text, where I rendered everything (I swear!) in the specified font size:
In the first panel (Cambria), the Greek letters are the same size and weight as the main text. As I have said, Cambria is one of the fonts explicitly recommended for your thesis. If you look closely at the enlarged line on the bottom of the panel, you can see that the alpha is the same height as the lower-case letters, whereas the beta is the same height as the upper-case letters. It looks neat and tidy.
However, by using a non-Latin font for your PhD thesis, you are asking for trouble.
In the second panel, I show Cordia New, a font for Thai script. At 12 pt, it is way smaller than the Latin font. The Greek letters – which are also at 12 pt! – stand out awkwardly. Also, Cordia New produces a line distance that is larger than it should be when using it for a text in the Latin alphabet.
In the last panel I show Microsoft YaHei for displaying Hanzi characters. Here, the Latin characters are larger. This leads to the Greek letters being too small. And, as you can see in the second and third lines of the paragraph of text, the line distance is quite narrow. However, the Greek letter β requires a regular line distance. So, it pushes the following line down, making the paragraph look uneven.
They don’t offer ligatures
Now, what on earth are ligatures? I could dive into the history of book printing here but I’ll spare you those details. In essence, Ligatures are two or more letters that are printed as one single glyph. Let me show you:
In the top line, you can see that the characters inside the boxes “melt” into each other. This single shape made out of several letter is called a ligature. They are mostly common with the small letter f. If you take a magnifying glass and look at the pages of a novel, you will quickly find these same ligatures. E-readers also display ligatures. Heck, even WhatsApp does it!
Ligatures also make the text easier to read. However, in order to display them, a font actually has to have the glyphs for the ligatures. And many fonts don’t. In order to find out whether a font you chose offers them, go to the character map of that font. (In Windows 10, simply click the windows logo in the corner of your screen and start typing the word “character”.) Pick a font in the drop-down menu. Now, search for the word “ligature” in the character map. If the map is empty after this, the font has no ligature glyphs.
All that being said, ligatures are not super important. I just wanted to mention them.
You can still use fonts made for non-Latin alphabets
If you want to honour your roots by way of a font, you can still do this. For example in your thesis title and/or for the chapter start pages.
In a word: Don’t go crazy with those fonts! Let your science do the talking. If you want to see what your thesis could look like with some of the fonts I recommended, check out the example PhD thesis .

The Thesis Project
The Thesis superfamily was first published in 1994 as part of the FontFont collection, and became part of the LucasFonts type library in 2000. The family was conceived as a versatile typographic system of ambitious scope. It grew out of a dissatisfaction with the limited range of good typefaces available for corporate identity projects. Thesis aims to fill that gap by providing the user with three compatible styles – TheSans , TheMix and TheSerif – in an optically harmonious range of eight weights, including real italics for each weight.
Thesis pioneered the concept of the all-purpose type system or superfamily which has since become such an important tool for the discerning typographer.
The Thesis family has been expanded over the years. TheSans and TheMix are now available in three widths: Normal, Condensed and SemiCondensed. In addition, three ultra-narrow widths for TheSans are available on demand.
TheSans offers several sub-families for specialized uses:
- TheSans Mono A monospaced series for computer coding and similar uses.
- TheSans Hair A carefully balanced series of seven hairline weights for ultralight magazine and advertising headlines.
- TheSans Typewriter A set of four typewriter-like fonts.
- TheSans Arabic The Arabic-speaking version of TheSans.
- Central and Eastern European
- Cyrillic (including Bulgarian Cyrilic)
- Latin Extended (including Vietnamese)

How to choose the font type for your dissertation?
It’s time for the design: your texts are finished and have been approved by your reading committee. One of the most important elements of a good layout is the font type. How do you choose a suitable font type for your manuscript? In this article, we will give you some tips and tricks!
Appearance of the font
The first thing to keep in mind when choosing a font type, is the general appearance/feeling you would like your thesis to have. Are you going for a modern appearance or would you like a more classical style? We’d like to refer you to see some examples of different styles of design . Once you have made your decision regarding the appearance of your dissertation, you are ready to choose a font type that matches this style. If you have an example that you like that’s not from our website, your designer with us can always check if we know what font it is.
If you want a more modern feel to your thesis, we recommend you opt for a sans serif font type. This means no serifs have been placed on the letters. More specifically, this results in letters without any thin dashes on the ends of the vertical and horizontal beams of a letter.
Some sans serif font types that are often used are:
For a more classic appearance, we recommend you go for a font type that does have serifs. These font types will give your dissertation a classic appearance, comparable to older scientific publications and novels.
Popular serif font types that can be found in theses more often are:
- Times New Roman
Now you have decided whether you would like a font type with or without serifs, you are ready to go through enormous lists of possibilities. We would have liked to give you some more tips and guidelines, however that is not possible anymore. The choice for a certain font type is very personal and totally depends on your taste. We do have some last points of attentions that might help you in finding the perfect font type for your dissertation.
How many variants does the font type have?
Most font types have many variants like italic , bold , light (a slim version) etc. This number of variants is important for your designer, because this will offer more possibilities in designing the lay-out. Almost every thesis has bolds and italics, so they’re often also simply necessary in the design. Therefore, we recommend you to always choose a font type with several variants; or at least one with ‘regular’, ‘italic’ and ‘bold’.
Is it a free font or are you required to pay for a license?
Perhaps you already knew this, but fonts can be really expensive. Every variant of a certain font type could come at additional costs between ten and hundred euros. Therefore, please ask us if we already have your desired font type in our database. This could save you a lot of money!
Already have a nice font in your Word-file?
If you are used to working with a specific font type – especially if you’ve written your thesis in it for several years – you will probably be very accustomed with the way it looks. Because of your habituation with this specific font type, it might be that you will disapprove of other font types without good consideration. Many doctoral students opt for Calibri because they’ve got accustomed to it, even though this font was originally designed for good screen readability (for example in Word) and not for print specifically. But because it’s so familiar, it’s a very popular choice for doctoral students’ theses.
Are you not yet sure which font would suit your thesis, to make sure the readability and design are the best they can be? Don’t hesitate to contact us, we’re happy to think along with you. Sometimes the best font depends on the content, tables or data in your thesis, so we can always advise you personally.

11 ideal fonts for dissertation writing |helpwithassignment.com.
Times New Roman, Georgia, Garamond, Arial, Verdana, Cambria, Century Gothic, Constantia, and Arial Narrow are some of the ideal fonts for dissertation writing.
What is Dissertation Writing ?
In the term – Dissertation writing, the word “Dissertation” has originated from the Latin language where ‘ dissertare’ means ‘to debate’. This word was first used in the English language in around 1651 which gave us a definition to write extensively on a certain subject. It is also defined as a long piece of writing on any particular topic which you have studied.
In a dissertation writing, the writer should always choose to write with the help of using a clear font like Arial, Times New Roman, etc. They should also set perfect font sizes such are 10 to 12 also the line spacing should be done of 1.15 or 1.5 which is generally accepted as it makes the document appear more neat and tidy and allows the reader to put comments in between.
Mistakes that should be avoided while choosing the Font for dissertation writing:
- Do not choose fonts on the basis of your personal likes and dislikes. Always the writer should keep in mind that they should choose the font on the basis of the reader’s perspective as it is not easy to go through a 20 pages dissertation with a complex font.
- Always avoid using too many fonts as the write-ups become too much complicated and is also not considered well organized.
- All fonts for dissertation do not match or work together, therefore, a student should make sure that they should choose fonts which go along their write up
- Try separating the fonts of your subtitles and the paragraphs as the same fonts used might make your writing monotonous and boring for the reader.

When your professor assigns you a thesis, he excepts it to be perfect at the time of submission. The textual content of the document is the utmost source of information. So, while creating content, you should take care of the font selection. Choosing the best font for the thesis provides an attractive appearance and preserves the aesthetic value of your document. Also, the font professionally presents information. Choosing font in both ways (either online or printed form) of the thesis is crucial. If you are submitting it online, then the font makes a difference in the readability. If you are providing it in the printed form, then the font reflects professionalism.

- Garamond Garamond is usually used for book printing and body text. If you want to write the main body or long paragraphs, then you can use this font. It is simple and easy to read.
- Cambria Cambria is founded by Microsoft and later distributed with Windows and Office. This font is the easiest to read in a hurry because it contains spaces and proportions between the alphabets. This is suitable for the body and the long sentence.
