Submit theses and dissertations

The Upstate Thesis and Dissertation SOAR Deposit may be used to submit theses and dissertations. In addition to the file to be uploaded, the following fields are required:

  • Author name
  • Title of the work
  • Advisor name
  • Type of work (dissertation or thesis)
  • Institution (Upstate Medical University)

Including the following information makes the work more discoverable:

  • Abstract
  • Keywords

A work may be embargoed and a Creative Commons copyright license chosen.  If none is selected, an Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs (CC BY-NC-ND) license will be applied by default; this is the most prohibitive license that does not allow derrivatives or commercial use of works.  The final step is to upload the thesis or dissertation in PDF format.

If an address is provided, authors will receive confirmation and the permanent URL by email when the submission is complete.
