  3. Submit your dissertation to ProQuest online after reviewing the recommendations below:
  • You have the option to pay ProQuest to register your copyright for you. Click here for additional information about copyright from the US Copyright Office.
  • ProQuest can print additional copies for you but it is cheaper to have additional copies of your dissertation bound through the Libraries.
  • If you need to delay the release of your dissertation in the database and iDEA because you plan to patent, publish or go to business with your research you will need your advisor’s permission. Have your advisor send an email approving a one-year delay to archives@drexel.edu.
