Your dissertation, thesis, or PDE (Project Demonstrating Excellence) is very special to you since it's a significant milestone in your professional and personal life. It is more than that. It is also your contribution to the knowledge of humanity and to the accumulated research-based knowledge of your discipline.
ProQuest Dissertation Publishing has been publishing dissertations and theses since 1938. In that time, they have published over 2 million graduate works from graduate schools around the world. They have over 700 active university publishing partners and publish more than 70,000 new graduate works each year. In addition to publishing, they provide access to graduate works held at thousands of libraries around the world through the service now known as ProQuest Dissertations and Theses (PQDT) and formerly known as Dissertation Abstracts.
The relationship between you and ProQuest Dissertation Publishing (PQDP) is that of author and publisher. The MC Graduate Office will assist as an intermediary in the process. This LibGuide will provide you with the information you need to submit your manuscript to PQDP for publication.
