The Four Steps

Note: It is recommended to go through the Training section before using the templates.

Step One: Use the ETD templates

The UNB ETD program gives students the option to use helpful and versatile thesis/dissertation templates (Microsoft Word and LaTeX), which are formatted and structured based on the standards and guidelines of the School of Graduate Studies.

Step Two: Submit Drafts For Review

The File Drop application is a simple file-sending tool for students, faculty, and staff who have a UNB account that is great for projects that are very large in size or that exceed size limits for email attachments.

Step Three: Convert to PDF

A PDF version of the final copy of your thesis or dissertation is required for deposit in UNB's digital repository, UNB Scholar.

Step Four: Submit final version to UNB Scholar

UNB Scholar is a digital repository created to capture, archive, and distribute the University's electronic research records, such as theses and dissertations. It is also a way to permanently preserve your work and be immediately accessible online. Browse through existing theses and disserations here.

IMPORTANT: The submission guidelines from the School of Graduate Studies should be read and understood by anyone electing to submit their theses/dissertation electronically. Students should also read the Regulations Guidelines for Preparation of Dissertations Theses Reports.
