Do ETDs Diminish Future Publishing Opportunities? What the Publishers Say

A session at USETDA 2013

Friday 26th July, 2013

9:00am to 10:00am (PST)

Roberts Hall North

Speaker: Marisa Ramirez, Digital Scholarship Services Librarian, Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo

In academia, there has been a growing acceptance of sharing the final electronic version of graduate work, such as a thesis or dissertation, in an online discoverable repository managed by a university.
Though previous studies have shown that journal editors are willing to consider manuscripts derived from electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs), faculty advisors and graduate students continue to raise concerns that increased online discoverability of ETDs will negatively impact future opportunities to publish those findings in a journal.
This presentation will share findings from recent research of social science, humanities and science publishers, and will leave attendees with a greater understanding of journal policies in relation to open access ETDs.
