Elsevier – Digital Commons for Student Work & ETDS


What do students have to show for all the work they produce during their time on campus? Showcasing student work in Digital Commons gives students a visible and lasting home for their accomplishments — and shows prospective students around the globe what kind of education they can expect to receive at your institution. Students or program advisors (as system administrators) can submit, track revisions, and approve through an online interface with automatic notifications. Customizable collaboration tools allow administrators from different graduate programs or departments to jointly manage electronic theses and dissertations instantly through a central system. Digital Commons gives students visibility and exposure for their research and scholarship — and monthly readership reports show just how their work is having an impact around the world. Faculty mentors and other stakeholders can also track impact to demonstrate the success of their departments and student research initiatives.
