Amplify your research

ETD Dissemination Program

Including dissertations and theses in ProQuest means amplifying your research by making it available in a unified repository. By including your works in ProQuest Dissertations & Theses Global, they can be studied in the context of generations of historical and ongoing scholarship.

Having my research published through ProQuest allows others to cite my work in their research and opens the door to other studies that will make future changes.
