What is an ETD?

RUetd is the Rutgers University service for graduate students to submit their theses and dissertations online. All ETDs will be preserved and made permanently available in the RUcore

An ETD is the dissertation or thesis of a research doctoral or master's student in an electronic format. This format makes the dissertation suitable for machine archives, and allows for worldwide retrieval. In content it is essentially the same as its paper predecessor and meets all the same expectations for style and substance.

Some Benefits of the RU edt are:

  • Provides a technologically advanced medium for conveying materials.
  • You may prepare an ETD by using nearly any word processor or document preparation system, and by incorporating relevant multimedia objects.
  • It is less expensive for you to prepare. By creating an ETD, you avoid the requirement of submitting multiple copies on special paper.
  • ETDs promote greater access to your research.
  • ETDs can be made available to anyone who browses the World Wide Web.

At What Phase of My Dissertation, Would I Begin This Process?

Students who have successfully defended their Dissertation and are ready to send their final document for review for formatting to teh Dean for Research, will submit their Dissertation electronically through this process. the Dean for Research will then review the Dissertation through the RUetd system. Once approved, the student will be notified and will be contacted by the Asstitant Dean for Student Affairs for information on additional post-dissertation requirements.
