Welcome to the School of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies' Electronic Theses & Dissertation site. These pages are dedicated to help you find all the information you might require in order to format and successfully submit your graduate thesis for examination and publication electronically.

Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETDs) are prepared as text-based PDF files. ETDs can contain non-text elements such as sound, video, and hypertext links. ETDs are available through Scholarship@Western, Western's digital library repository, and also released to the world-wide web with priority in many search engines, enabling scholars worldwide to locate, search, and download the University of Western Ontario's ETDs.

Benefits of ETDs (from Library and Archives Canada)

The most significant benefit is the dramatic increase (50-250%) in citation impact that results from electronic publishing. This leads to increased rewards from universities, in the form of promotion and increased salary, and from granting agencies.

Other benefits include:

  • publicity for research - authors of electronic theses become more widely known and their reputations are enhanced
  • easy worldwide access to your theses for colleagues and collaborators
  • easy worldwide access to theses for job and grant applications
  • a raised profile for research institutions
  • reduced costs at the point of graduation since there is no need to have multiple copies printed.
