Publishing Electronic Theses and Dissertations with Digital Commons
Promote, review, and publish student scholarship online.
Eliminate paper workflows
Students or administrators upload submissions online and track revision and approval through an easy, online interface with automatic notifications. Customizable, collaborative tools allow administrators from different programs or departments to jointly manage the university-wide ETD program instantly through the same system.
Invaluable exposure for student work
Published on a software platform designed for maximum visibility, students' electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs) will be discovered, disseminated, and cited around the world. Monthly readership reports let students know that their work is making an impact.
Access controls and embargo
Working directly with the Digital Commons team, administrators can specify the workflow settings and editorial privileges of their ETD content. They can publish ETDs under their choice of licenses, including an open access Creative Commons license. And they can apply access controls and embargoes to content by specific dates or by date ranges.
