Dissertations into databases
Graduate students at most universities are encouraged or required to include their dissertations in Proquest’s Dissertations and Theses database and more recently in local digital repositories such as Loyola’s eCommons. Inclusion of dissertations in these types of services is considered beneficial to students and degree granting institutions. Students, recent graduates and newer faculty are encountering new obstacles in academic publishing as a result of the conflict of interest between the goals of the open access movement and those of academic presses. Join representatives from The Graduate School, the Libraries, Proquest, and others for a lively discussion on these issues. Refreshments will be provided.
