As a ProQuest university publishing partner, you have the option of submitting your institution’s graduate works online or via paper submission. We also have programs for retrospective publishing and open access publishing of graduate works.  

Why use online submission

ProQuest Dissertation Publishing offers a free online submission program for dissertations and theses, used by over 400 of our university publishing partners. Trials and demonstrations are available at .

Online submission is easier, faster, and results in the highest quality version of the published graduate work. For example, it offers:

  • A shorter publishing process: on average, 2 to 4 weeks shorter than paper submissions
  • No printing or shipping requirement: all submission work occurs online, so no copies to print and no boxes to pack and ship
  • No paper forms to complete and mail: all forms can be completed online
  • Preservation of the graduate work as submitted: with the "born digital" version of a graduate work, we can capture all color images, graphs, and other elements exactly as the author intended
  • True accessibility for the vision-impaired: scanned images of paper submissions cannot be interpreted by screen readers; only PDFs created from the original electronic document are readable

Ongoing support for paper submission

While we encourage all our university publishing partners to migrate to online submission, ProQuest Dissertation Publishing continues to support paper submission.
