Use ETD Administrator - trusted workflow tool for streamlining, archiving, and dissemination of graduate research
The ProQuest ETD Administrator system helps manage the electronic submission of dissertations and theses from your institution. It simplifies the submission process for students and graduate administrators alike by moving all steps online and eliminating the need to box and ship paper copies of each dissertation or thesis.
Student Submission Process
We will establish a unique ETD Administrator site for your students that will guide them through uploading their graduate works and all relevant information. The system alerts the designated administrator for your school when each student submission is complete, providing an opportunity to review the submission before sending it to us.
The Administrator Role
Every ETD Administrator site will have one primary administrator, with additional administrators depending on the size and needs of your school. Alerted when new submissions are completed, the administrator reviews each submission before sending to ProQuest, either individually or in batches. The administrator can also have the prepublication version of each submission posted to a university FTP site.
Once your ETD Administrator site has been set up, we will notify you and provide administrator-level access. You will then have the ability to:
