Nuts & Bolts: Dissertation Submission and Beyond

Posted Tuesday, 03 April 2012

Panel Discussion

Wednesday, April 4, 2012, 1–3 p.m.
Common Room, Dudley House

  • What copyright issues are to be considered in writing the dissertation?
  • What are the submission requirements for the final version of the dissertation?
  • What is necessary for submitting the dissertation electronically to ProQuest?
  • What is the Office of Scholarly Communication? Why will my dissertation be deposited there?

To answer these and other questions, representatives from the Registrar’s Office, GSAS, University Archives, the General Counsel’s Office, ProQuest, Bureau of Study Counsel, Office of Scholarly Communication will be presenting a session on the final stages of the preparation of the dissertation. Time will be allocated for questions and a discussion of common problems that graduate students experience at this stage of the process. This session will be most helpful for those who are in the completion phase of dissertation writing as well as those who will be entering this phase soon, but everyone is invited to attend.

You can take a self-guided tour of the new submission portal, which is easy to use, and which allows you to begin the submission process and save or edit your submission as you go along.
