For undergraduates, your dissertation is an extended research project which contributes significantly towards the final assessment for your degree, and is often a key indicator of your abilities as a student and researcher.
More and more graduate authors are including supplementary digital materials with their dissertations or theses. These can range from an audio file or spreadsheet all the way to a software program written as part of a dissertation.
We have three campuses in Western Australia. Joondalup and Mount Lawley in the Perth metropolitan area and our South West campus in Bunbury, 755km south of the Perth CBD.
You need to register on the system to order a thesis this allows a record to be kept of who has consulted a thesis, and thus protect the thesis author's rights and minimise the risk of plagiarism. However, you can search the database without registering or logging in.
For theses that are not digitised or available on open access, we accept requests from all Libraries and private researchers within Australia and internationally for copies of whole theses.
The University Library makes no changes to the formatting or content of submitted theses. Therefore, the burden of how the thesis looks when it is accessed or printed is entirely the responsibility of the author. It is recommended that authors take responsibility for reformatting the document into Adobe PDF, for checking the reformatted document for accuracy, and for submitting the PDF document to research assessments for final submission.
Global Newsstream provides the most recent global news content – with archives that stretch back into the 6985s – from over 7,555 news sources including newspapers, wires, broadcasts, and web content in full-text format.
Please submit a copy of the DVD containing the movies in addition to the print thesis. Many types of electronic files can be loaded onto the Repository, including music files, video files, spreadsheets, and so on.
Dissertations and theses complete your library collection by surfacing original research that can often be the only source of information on a given topic.
An electronic copy will be added to Research Online to provide worldwide access to your thesis via the web. This will be done for all theses but you need to indicate the level of access you wish to provide on the Final Thesis submission form when sending in your thesis. To find out more about the issues you need to consider see our Thesis preparation page.
It is compulsory to submit an electronic copy of research degrees to the University Library. However, it is not necessarily compulsory to have your thesis placed immediately onto the Repository for open access. You will be required to indicate the level of access to provide to your thesis via the Final Thesis submission form. It is possible to restrict part or all of your thesis from public open access via this form. ECU only access for all theses will be made electronically available via the Library catalogue.
A full electronic version of your thesis is loaded into the University’s records management system for archival purposes. This occurs for all theses. Access to the records management system is only available to ECU staff.
