Electronic Thesis and Dissertation
(ETD) are the present way rapidly being adopted all over the world. India being
a information super power should also implement it, and be on the forefront of
this technology. This will tremendously boost our research quality because
everyone will be able to access each other's work with ease.
Please think what happens to our research
today. In karnataka alone, there are about 1000 thesis done each year by
medical and dental post graduates. Its a pity that so much of time spent by our
students is not put to productive use. As all students today type thesis on
computer it is very easy to put them in digital format. Think about it and I am
sure you will act. If a professor and his student know that their research is
worthwhile -they surely want more exposure to it.

ETDs are dissertations and theses prepared for submission
as text-based Adobe PDF (Portable Document Format) files. ETDs can contain
non-text elements that cannot be incorporated into traditional hard-copy theses
and dissertations. Multimedia, sound, video, and
hypertext links can be included to expand and deepen the expression
of ideas and the presentation of research. Importantly, ETDs give broader
exposure to graduate student research. It also promotes better research because
of better exchange.
We have adopted technology for making digital dissertations. Our main areas
of interest is in medical and allied subjects. Completed dissertations can be
found on this site.

- You can also prevent copy/paste, print or save so that no one can do anything with it, but of
course they can just read it.
- People will be afraid to copy as they would know that people will have access to his work also.
- This will become possible only if every university makes it compulsory for all students to
submit a copy of their thesis in digital format and post on their website.
