What is the Electronic Theses & Dissertations process?
Electronic Theses & Dissertations (ETD) is a four-step process that the University of New Brunswick provides to graduate students, enabling them to write, review, submit and deposit their theses and dissertations electronically. You can start at any stage of your thesis development.
Benefits and Goals
Some of the student benefits of the ETD program include:
- The writing and review process is more efficient for students, allowing them to focus more on their content rather than spend countless hours of formatting their documents
- More academic exposure for the student's work
- Immediate online presence
There are dozens more reasons for students to choose the ETD process. To read about them, navigate to our Why ETDs? section.
The goals of the UNB program are those of the broad ETD initiative and include: for universities to learn how to unlock the potential of their intellectual property and productions; for graduate education to improve through more effective sharing; for technology and knowledge sharing, as graduate research results become more readily and more completely available; for graduate students to learn about electronic publishing and digital libraries, applying that knowledge as they engage in their research and build and submit their own ETD; for universities to learn about digital libraries, as they collect, catalog, archive, and make ETDs accessible to scholars worldwide.
