ETD Preparation and Submission: Guidelines for Graduate Students

This guide will give you information on, and walk you through, all aspects of the ETD (electronic theses and dissertations) process.


Welcome to the guide for the ETD process here at Duquesne!

ETD simply stands for electronic theses and dissertations, and many graduate programs at the university require you submit one to the institutional repository as a graduation requirement. They are then reviewed by the Scholarly Communications and Systems Librarian to ensure they adhere to Duquesne's guidelines.

This guide will walk you through the process of submitting your ETD to the library, the formatting review process, frequently asked questions, and tips.
