Submit Your ETD

ETD Administrator is the application that is used at Rutgers to archive theses and dissertations electronically.

If you are submitting your ETD, check with your graduate school for specific requirements and guidelines.

Restricted access to ETDs

  • Full text ETDs submitted in ETD Administrator are available in the Rutgers repository and ProQuest database and are indexed in Google Scholar unless an embargo has been applied.
  • Access to an ETD will sometimes be delayed, or embargoed, at the request of the author. The most common reasons are because there is an intention to publish based on the ETD or because it supports a patent application.
  • If under embargo, a record with descriptive information and a full abstract will be included in the Rutgers repository and ProQuest database. The full text will only be available after the embargo expires.
  • An embargo can be extended upon request to and approval by your graduate school.
