Theses are posted to the Bucknell Digital Commons in order to make Bucknell scholarship available to the broader academic community. After a successful thesis defense, the student will receive instructions on thesis submission from the Chair of the Honors Council or the Chair of Graduate Studies.
Prior to submitting your thesis to Bucknell Digital Commons, a signed signature page must be combined with your thesis into a single PDF file (more information here).
The Submission form includes the following fields:
Please discuss copyright, embargo, and limited access options with your adviser prior to upload.
Once a thesis is uploaded, your advisor will review your metadata, check the formatting of your paper, and register a decision to Accept, Accept with minor revisions, or Reject the uploaded paper. The Digital Commons administrator will conduct a final review before your thesis is posted to the Bucknell Digital Commons.
Remember that each department and each advisor may have different expectations and guidelines. Students should discuss formatting and submission expectations with their advisor prior to upload. General questions about the submission process may be directed to email@example.com.
