STEMskiller: Skill Set Map for Mentors of Early Career Researchers
Managing eThesis/doctoral dissertation submissions
Many universities have standard submission procedures for theses. Mentors should be sure to let all doctoral students know about any possible local templates and/or other submission requirements, including timelines for submission in relation to the defense. Some universities have dedicated staff to help students prepare their dissertations for long-term archiving/online publication.
Useful resources on Managing eThesis/doctoral dissertation submissions:
MIT Libraries. (2020). MIT specifications for thesis preparation. https://libraries.mit.edu/distinctive-collections/thesis-specs/#graduate
Sample specifications, discussing copyright issues, possible temporary holds, timelines, formatting, and production. FAQ and email to dedicated support staff. Can serve as a model for institutions not yet providing such support services.
