      India starts consultation on making thesis online
      http://www.digitalopportunity.org/article/view/112326/1/
      The University Grants Commission (UGC) of India is inviting public comments to
      its draft consultation paper “Electronic Thesis Online (India) UGC (Submission
      of Metadata and Full-text of Doctoral Theses in Electronic Format) Regulations,
      2005”.

      The paper reviews the recent developments in the field of electronic thesis,
      current scenario in online thesis archiving in India and abroad and
      implementation mechanisms while recommending a set of metadata for online
      archiving of electronic theses and dissertations (ETD).

      The consultation paper also incorporates UGC’s Submission of Metadata and
      Full-text of Doctoral Theses in Electronic Format Regulations, 2005.

      UGC’s plan of implementing a regulatory framework and an implementation
      mechanism for maintaining standards, archiving, accessing doctoral research from
      the Indian universities will ensure easy archive and access of Indian Doctoral
      theses, besides raising the standard of research.

      ETDs help research degree awarding institutions overcome serious problem of
      duplication of research and poor quality resulting from the 'poor visibility'
      and the 'unseen' factor in research output.

      UGC is inviting comments from the stakeholders on the Draft Regulations &
      Implementation Process with Annexure(s).

      Comments can be sent by email at pagarwal@... by 15th June, 2005.
