Fall 2017 Thesis and Dissertation Workshop: What do I need to do before I graduate?
Monday 30 October 2017

The workshop addresses requirements and processes for online submission of theses and dissertations, copyright, deadlines, and formatting. You may find more information about the workshop here.
You can find video of the spring 2017 workshop and the slideshow presented here.
We also record these workshops: the Fall 2017 video will be posted at the link above as soon as it is available.
Fall 2015 ETD Formatting and Copyright Workshop
This hands-on workshop guides students through the process of formatting their thesis or dissertation, exploring copyright considerations for theses and dissertations, and resources in the KU Libraries that can help. You can view the video from the Fall 2015 ETD Workshop here.
Previously Published KU Research
We encourage you to explore theses and dissertations previously published by students from your department and related fields. This can be a great way to learn more about how students are handling field-specific requirements or challenges, like large numbers of images or large data sets. Please be aware, however, that KU Graduate Studies' formatting requirements have changed over time, so older thesis or dissertation formatting may not conform to KU's current requirements. Current formatting requirements are posted here: http://graduate.ku.edu/etd-formatting-and-working-multimedia-files
KU ScholarWorks is a digital repository for student theses and dissertations as well as scholarly work created by the faculty and staff of the University of Kansas. KU ScholarWorks makes important research available to a wider audience and helps assure its long-term preservation. For more information about KU ScholarWorks, contact them.
Abstracts and citation information for all theses and dissertations previously submitted to KU are available through ProQuest. In many cases, the full text of the thesis or dissertation may also be available. This database is the same for both KUMC and the Lawrence campuses, however, due to differences in licensing, it is accessed through different links. To increase the impact of research produced at KU, a dissertation or thesis may be available in both KU ScholarWorks and ProQuest.
- KUMC users: log into Current Research @ KU to access the ProQuest database of dissertations and theses.
- KU Lawrence and Edwards campus users: log into Dissertation & Theses @ University of Kansas to access the ProQuest database.
