Student Work & ETDS

What do students have to show for all the work they produce during their time on campus? Showcasing student work in Digital Commons gives students a visible and lasting home for their accomplishments — and shows prospective students around the globe what kind of education they can expect to receive at your institution.

  • Support for the full range of student output, including journals and conferences
  • Leading SEO increases visibility of student successes
  • Impact analytics for students and university administration
  • Flexible, integrated workflows for theses and dissertations
  • Access control, licensing options and custom embargos 

Leverage (and improve) the quality of student work

From honors theses and capstone projects to student-edited publications, fieldwork and creative arts, students do their best work when they know it will be shared with potential employers, graduate schools, parents and their peers. Make sure your students write with a worldwide audience in mind.

Eliminate paper workflows for theses and dissertations

Students or program advisors (as system administrators) can submit, track revisions, and approve through an online interface with automatic notifications. Customizable collaboration tools allow administrators from different graduate programs or departments to jointly manage electronic theses and dissertations instantly through a central system.

Connect students to a worldwide audience

Digital Commons gives students visibility and exposure for their research and scholarship — and monthly readership reports show just how their work is having an  impact around the world. Faculty mentors and other stakeholders can also track impact to demonstrate the success of their departments and student research initiatives.
