Participate in Major ETD Survey!

We are requesting participation in an international survey of Electronic Theses and Dissertations–ETDs. While ETDs have been part of academia for over 20 years, this is only the third survey that attempts to collect data on the general practices of academic institutions around the world regarding ETDs. For the purpose of this survey, an ETD is a born-digital document that represents the research/writing of a student completed at the culmination of a degree program, e.g., masters or undergraduate honors thesis, doctoral dissertations, scholarly project, etc.

Please take about 15 minutes to complete this anonymous survey by pasting the URL below into your Internet browser.


Information from the 2021 International Survey of ETDs will be summarized and shared broadly through publications, presentations and in easily accessible public repositories.

Thank you very much for participating in this important effort.
