phd thesis or dissertation
Advanced research and scholarship. Theses and dissertations, free to find, free to use.
We’re happy to present several data visualizations to give an overall sense of the OATD.org collection by county of publication, language, and field of study.
Ph.D. candidates at Brown must file their dissertations electronically. Brown’s electronic theses and dissertation (ETD) system was developed by the Graduate School and the University Library and launched in 2008. The system is designed to collect and archive the final dissertation as a text-based PDF file.
To complete the submission process doctoral candidates must have successfully defended their dissertation and had it approved by their committee. To use the ETD system, doctoral candidates must also be actively enrolled and possess a valid username and password for accessing Brown’s computer network. If you are unable to create an account in the system and wish to submit, please contact [email protected] for assistance.
