Do you know what happens to your thesis or dissertation during the graduation process? In many cases, you pay some fairly exorbitant fees to have your manuscript printed and bound, and unless you read the fine print you may not realize that you are also giving the printer permission to lock your work away in a subscription-only database.
Why? The answer is simple: That is the way it has always been done. The process has not changed with the times.
There is no reason that your document should not be freely available on the web to the whole world, benefiting others, helping you to network, helping you find a job, or perhaps resulting in intellectual property licensing opportunities.
If that sounds like a good idea to you, upload your document to OpenThesis!
We can also help you save money on printing costs by using on-demand printing services that specialize in low volume printing. You are in no way obligated to do this, but if you would like to save some money during graduation, just let us know – we can have your manuscript printed for far less than the fees students are often charged. We can also get you an ISBN at a reduced price if your school requires one.
