Your first step after your dissertation or thesis is approved is to set up your own profile in the Regent University EDT Administrator.
You create your submission, a process which includes:
Providing your contact information
Providing a PDF version of your manuscript.
Making decisions about publishing options and restrictions
Your submission is assigned to an administrator at your graduate school for review. The assigned administrator reviews your submission to ensure that your information—including your abstract and the PDF of your manuscript—is accurate, correct, and complete. You may be asked to make either minor or major revisions. When your submission passes review, the administrator will 'accept' it. Your ETD is then sent to ProQuest/UMI for publishing.
The ETD Administrator will now default to having the dissertation and thesis metadata discoverable via Google and Google Scholar. "The change in the ETD Administrator reflects ProQuest's effort to facilitate additional visibility for graduate scholarly works."
This change will go into effect on March 30, 2018.
You will continue to have the ability to remove your ProQuest-provided metadata from Google and Google Scholar by contacting ProQuest via email or telephone at 1-800-521-0600.
This is a preview of the ProQuest ETD Administrator submission steps that you will take as you submit your dissertation or thesis using the ProQuest ETD Administrator.
