Submitting your Thesis/Dissertation

Step 1: Eastern University's Dissertation and Thesis Copyright and Library Release Form - This form grants permission for Warner Library to store and share print copies and electronic submissions of academic works by Eastern students. Fill out the form and attach a pdf or text file of your thesis or dissertation. Your print copy (if submitted) will be cataloged for the library's collection and made available to the Eastern University community. Your electronic copy is kept on the library's hard drive for storage purposes only.

Step 2: Publishing your dissertation/thesis with ProQuest - Students who would like their thesis or dissertation to be available electronically for other researchers may submit their work to ProQuest. Theses and dissertations submitted to ProQuest are included in Warner Library's Dissertations & Theses @ Eastern University database. For a fee, you may also submit your thesis or dissertation to the ProQuest Dissertations & Theses Open Access database, which allows wider access to your work. Please carefully read and follow the publishing guidelines.
