ETD Administrator- Electronic Submissions

The ProQuest ETD Administrator system is a web-based tool which helps in managing the electronic submission of dissertations and theses that any university plans to publish with ProQuest. It simplifies the dissertations & theses submission process for students and administrators by moving all steps through a systematic organized online process. Configurable to each institution’s workflow needs, it provides an online submission, review, and approval process for electronic theses and dissertations.

The ETD Administrator site allows authors of dissertations or theses to publish with ProQuest without the need to produce paper copies of their work. Authors can submit their manuscripts to the appropriate institutional staff for review, approval, and delivery to ProQuest in an efficient and cost-effective way.

This tool is freely available to any institution to use.  Request a local site setup by submitting a case to ETD Support.  To review the tool, access the Demo Site:
