What if there is a problem with submission?
 
Submissions are checked in upon receipt. If everything is in order the dissertations/theses are put into process. If we find that something is missing, we pull the individual manuscript and process it as an "Await Word." The manuscript is assigned a temporary identification number and a letter is sent to the school and author requesting missing materials. We will hold the manuscript for 30 days before shipping back to the school and deleting the records from our database. Some common reasons for Await Words might be a missing publishing signature, abstract or author address on the agreement form. We do not hold dissertations if copyright money is not received. Instead we process with no copyright, even if a student has signed for it.
