Process for submitting electronically to the OhioLINK ETD Center:
Delaying Electronic Publication of a Thesis or Dissertation
In some circumstances, a student may wish to delay the electronic publication of a thesis or dissertation. While the University generally promotes the publication of theses and dissertations as quickly as possible, it is recognized that under certain circumstances, a delay is warranted. These may include: when the student wishes to publish an article from the thesis or dissertation in a journal whose policy is not to publish material that has already been published electronically; when the student wishes to publish the thesis or dissertation with a publisher whose policy is not to publish material that has already been published electronically; or, when the student is in the process of applying for a patent on research contained in the thesis or dissertation and does not wish to disclose its contents until a patent application has been filed.
With approval from his or her thesis/dissertation advisor and program director, a student may delay publication of their thesis or dissertation for one or two years. Under no circumstances may publication be indefinitely or permanently delayed.
