Deposit of Theses
A candidate submitting a thesis in partial fulfillment of the requirements governing the award of advanced degrees must deposit the approved thesis with the Brock University Digital Repository before the degree will be conferred.
When the thesis is in its final form (following defence), has been approved by the graduate program, and meets FGS Thesis Format Specifications, the student will submit the thesis to the Brock University Digital Repository. The student must also submit to the Faculty of Graduate Studies the Certificate of Approval, the Library and Archives Canada (LAC) Non-Exclusive License to Reproduce Theses, and the Brock University Thesis and Major Research Paper Copyright Licence.
Under certain circumstances, (e.g. to protect confidential commercial information, patentable material, pending application, or where immediate commercial publication is anticipated), a graduate student may request a restriction on the circulation of the thesis for up to a period of twelve months.
Here are the steps to follow to complete the electronic submission:
1. Review the following information
2. Final approval
3. Print out, complete and submit all required forms to your Graduate Program who will then forward to the Faculty of Graduate Studies.
4. Upload/submit your e-thesis
5. Thesis Binding Options
Students and programs may wish to purchase bound theses. It is up to you to select a binding vendor yourself. There are numerous options on campus and elsewhere including print shops and professional binderies. The Library and Graduate Studies do not provide this service.
