Literature review of research into attitudes towards electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs).
UCL Library Services/ SHERPA LEAP: London, UK.
This document summarises existing research into the attitudes of graduate students and their supervisors towards electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs). Research was identified from Germany, India, Italy, South Africa, the UK and the US. The authors of two published papers from the UK were contacted via email and asked to expand upon their published work. In order to extend the picture of current attitudes of UK research students and supervisors to ETDs, repository managers from UCL Eprints and White Rose Research Online (Based at the universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York) who have relatively advanced collections of ETDs, were asked to provide a list of the concerns that were most often brought to their attention during their advocacy work.
