Electronic Theses, Dissertations, and Reports
All K-State graduate students are required to submit an electronic version of their thesis, dissertation, or report. The Graduate School does not accept paper copies.
Electronic theses, dissertations, and reports (ETDR) submitted by K-State students are openly available through the K-State Research Exchange (K-REx) and are indexed by Google, Google Scholar, and other search engines.
PDF is the required format for submitting an ETDR, but students have the option of including supplemental files, such as audio, video, datasets, etc. along with their PDF file.
Formatting your ETDR
This site provides detailed information on ETDR requirements and guidelines; Word and LaTeX templates for writing your ETDR; guidelines for using Word and troubleshooting Word problems; a submission checklist when your ETDR is finished; and much more. Use the menu on the left to access specific information.
If you have questions on any aspect of your ETDR, help is available through the Graduate School and the Information Technology Help Desk. See Help and Contact Information to determine which office to contact for your specific question.
