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.

Duquesne Scholarship Submission

This submission will require you to upload both a PDF and a Word version of your thesis or dissertation. The Word document is required so that the Office of Systems and Scholarly Communications can use it for the formatting review. 

Things to keep in mind:

  • Please only submit a single, complete Word document.
    • If you wrote your chapters separately, and need help merging them, please see our Formatting Tips.
  • Please put your last name in the file name.
  • If you want an embargo, please be sure to choose that option when you get to it.
  • The DSC can be slow, so please wait until it tells you that your submission is complete before closing the page.
