EBSCO Open Dissertations
EBSCO Open Dissertations makes electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs) more accessible to researchers worldwide. The free portal is designed to benefit universities and their students and make ETDs more discoverable.
Increasing Discovery & Usage of ETD Research
EBSCO Open Dissertations is a collaboration between EBSCO and BiblioLabs to increase traffic and discoverability of ETD research. You can join the movement and add your theses and dissertations to the database, making them freely available to researchers everywhere while increasing traffic to your institutional repository.
EBSCO Open Dissertations extends the work started in 2014, when EBSCO and the H.W. Wilson Foundation created American Doctoral Dissertations which contained indexing from the H.W. Wilson print publication, Doctoral Dissertations Accepted by American Universities, 1933-1955. In 2015, the H.W. Wilson Foundation agreed to support the expansion of the scope of the American Doctoral Dissertations database to include records for dissertations and theses from 1955 to the present.
How Does EBSCO Open Dissertations Work?
Your ETD metadata is harvested via OAI and integrated into EBSCO’s platform, where pointers send traffic to your IR.
EBSCO integrates this data into their current subscriber environments and makes the data available on the open web via opendissertations.org .

Electronic theses and dissertations.
The Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETD) application is used by Stanford students for the submission of PhD dissertations and Engineering Masters Theses.
ETDs at Stanford is a joint initiative involving Stanford Libraries and the Office of the University Registrar that launched in Fall 2009. Teams from both organizations support the program, with policies, workflows and software, to enable the submission, processing, online availability, and preservation of theses and dissertations in digital form produced by Stanford students. University IT's Administrative Services is a third partner who oversees PeopleSoft/Axess integration points with the ETD application.
The Office of the Registrar supports students by providing documentation available online to reduce the need for in-person assistance. The streamlined submission process saves time for the Registrar and students alike, and reduces environmental impact by eliminating the need to print multiple paper copies for binding, or even more copies when last-minute corrections are required.
All PhD and Engineering Master's student submissions are available for access in SearchWorks .
