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, and useful resources.
Once ETD is submitted, expect to be contacted within 1 to 2 weeks by the ETD Coordinator about any final revisions that must be made
Consider the ETD Coordinator’s suggested revisions
Submit the final edited version to the ETD Coordinator for final approval
When your dissertation is in full compliance with the university formatting guidelines, you will receive an email notification copying the University Registrar and the chair of your committee in thereby completing the process
