Thesis Publishing Information

 

This is just for information, no action is required.

 

This email below is sent to the Thesis students once the registrar’s office receives the grade

 

Congratulations on completing your thesis! You are now eligible for publication through ProQuest, Library and Archives Canada, and DSpace@RRU. Please visit www.etdadmin.com/royalroads to submit your thesis for publication.

 

To facilitate the publication process, please prepare your thesis by:

  • Ensuring      your manuscript is signature-free, including the title page
  • Removing      any phone numbers, email addresses, mailing addresses, or other contact      information that appears in your manuscript
  • Adjusting      your margins so that they are at least 1 inch. This includes your      header. Your header should be at least one inch from the top of the      page.

 

Once you are ready to submit, please be sure you have the following items ready:

  • Full      text of your thesis. ProQuest offers a PDF conversion tool as part of the      submission process. In order to ensure that your PDF is formatted      correctly, please use this PDF conversion tool. You will be prompted      to convert your thesis as part of the submission process.
  • Your      Abstract and up to six keywords.
  • The      names of your thesis supervisor and committee members
  • One      to three subjects from the subject category guide: http://www.etdadmin.com/UMI_SubjectCategoriesGuide.pdf     

 Once you complete your submission it will be reviewed for privacy, formatting, and copyright issues that will need to be addressed prior to publication. Please rest assured that you will be able to graduate on schedule even if you are still in the process of publishing your thesis. If you have collected any copyright permission letters for material that appears in your thesis, please upload it as a supplemental file named “Do Not Publish Permission Letter”.
