Therefore, the University views the wide and timely dissemination of thesis and dissertation results as an obligation of students.
The Graduate School requires that all theses and dissertations be deposited electronically and made available through the Pro Quest Dissertations and Theses Database, and through the University of Washington Libraries’ Research Works repository service—which makes them available to other UW researchers and the general public.
ETDs are distributed by Pro Quest/UMI Dissertation Publishing and made available on an open access basis through UW Libraries Research Works Service.
The Graduate School partners with the UW Libraries to provide comprehensive resources for students as they write, submit, and publish academic theses or dissertations.
As a starting point, students submitting an ETD are encouraged to review the below information session hosted by the UW Libraries and Graduate Enrollment Management Services.
