A thesis, dissertation, or professional paper is an important contribution to scholarship and society. Sharing these contributions supports UNLV’s mission and Top Tier efforts to create an environment in which “students produce high quality, widely disseminated, and influential research, scholarship, and creative activities.”

The most effective way to share scholarship is through UNLV’s Institutional Repository, Digital Scholarship@UNLV.

There are other benefits for students and the university to have theses, dissertations, and professional papers in Digital Scholarship@UNLV:

  • • Allows graduate students to easily share the knowledge with and improve the world. Students who enter the academic job market or continue their studies elsewhere can utilize permanent links to scholarship in their CVs or online portfolio to conveniently share their work with others.
  • • Digital Scholarship@UNLV is committed to a high-level of preservation of theses, dissertations, and professional papers, ensuring that these contributions to scholarship will exist for future generations.
  • • Readership reports and impact metrics are available for authors, allowing authors to know in real time how often their work was downloaded, cited, or tweeted.
  • • For departments and colleges, having their graduate theses, dissertations, and professional papers available online can help recruit future scholars to their program.
