CSUSM adopted an Intellectual Property Policy in 2012. This policy states "copyrightable works prepared by students as part of the requirements for a University degree program are deemed to be the property of the student. Unless otherwise agreed upon, research records for a graduate theses or dissertation are the property of the University, but the student-creator may retain a copy of the work." You should talk with your faculty advisor if you have questions about the material contained in your thesis or project. The library has created guidelines that can help assist you when dealing with proprietary information in your thesis or project
Make sure to bring your “Report of the Completion of the Doctoral Project and Recommendation for the Degree of Doctor of Education" form with you to this appointment. When your dissertation has been accepted, the form will be signed by the Scholarly Communications Librarian then forwarded to the Dean of Graduate Studies for his signature. Once it has been signed by the Dean of Graduate Studies, CSUSM will email you a copy, and mail your signed form back to UCSD.
If you and your committee agree to place a restriction on your thesis, project, or dissertation for patent or security reasons, you must indicate on the e-thesis/project certification form. An embargo means that your work will not be viewable by anyone without a CSUSM user name and password for the given period. After the restriction expires, the Library will make your work publicly available for anyone to see. An embargo must be authorized by your faculty advisor, and indicated on your certification form. Your advisor may ask you to submit a modified version of your abstract to ScholarWorks for embargoed items. Please let Carmen Mitchell know if you have any questions.
Most universities have their own specifications regarding the lettering. Unless there are not strict requirements, the standard is “Degree, Name and Year” on the spine and “Title of dissertation and Name” on the front. Please be aware that this may vary
Students should consult with their committee chair and members of their advisory committee to determine the textual arrangement and reference format of the dissertation or thesis. Each discipline is different, and has different expectations for style. If you need assistance with citation styles, please contact the Research Help Desk or a librarian.
Since becoming an independent university in 1972, George Mason University staff have managed the procedures for writing and submitting theses and dissertations as part of the degree requirements for most graduate programs. Each college manages its own graduate program, and students work with the University Dissertation and Thesis Coordinator in Fenwick Library to submit their work. As of 2013, students only submit electronic theses and dissertations.
No, you do not need an appointment to submit your thesis or project. You DO need an appointment to submit a dissertation. If you have questions that are not answered in this guide, please email the Scholarly Communication Librarian.
