Why publish a dissertation or thesis with ProQuest?
 
ProQuest Dissertation Publishing provides the only comprehensive service in the world for publishing, archiving and disseminating graduate research. Over the past 70 years, we have published more than 2 million dissertations and theses. Most graduate schools in the United States require their students to publish with ProQuest. Why? Doctoral dissertations and master's theses are primary literature. They are valuable contributions to the discourse in every field of inquiry. ProQuest will ensure that each published graduate work is archived in our vaults, and disseminated based on each individual author's needs – we can sell copies of your work through a variety of mechanisms, make it available on an Open Access basis, or completely restrict access, based on your direction. Publishing your dissertation or thesis with ProQuest provides you with a legitimate citation for your curriculum vitae and for other scholars who refer to your work. ProQuest's dissertation research tools have been the primary sources used to cite published dissertations and theses for decades.
