Welcome to Emory University's Electronic Thesis and Dissertation repository.
The primary purpose of a thesis or dissertation is to train the student in the process of scholarly research and writing under the direction of members of the Graduate Faculty. After the student has graduated and the work is published, it serves as a contribution to human knowledge, is useful to other scholars and perhaps even to a more general audience. Electronic thesis and dissertations (eTDs) expand the creative possibilities open to students and empower students to convey a richer message by permitting video, sound, and color images to be integrated into their work. Submitting and archiving eTDs helps students to understand electronic publishing issues and provides greater access to students' research. Through the Web, people from any place on the globe can link directly to eTD collections at Penn State and other universities.
Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETD) have replaced printed theses and dissertations for most Rutgers graduate programs and are available through RUcore. Beginning with October 2007 degree date submissions, dissertations and theses that represent a terminal degree from the Graduate School--New Brunswick are submitted in online form only. Other graduate schools, including the Graduate School--Rutgers University-Newark, the Camden Graduate School, the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, the Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology, and the Graduate School of Education, are participating in the program as well. The Mason Gross School of the Arts has made electronic submission optional.

The database can be searched by keywords, author, title, department, major, major professor, committee members, etc. For additional information, click the "Instructions" button on any search screen. Since an individual's name may appear in the database in various ways (especially for faculty members on the advisory committees), use the Browse Search to find all variations.Most of the documents are in the PDF format.
