The Graduate School at the University of Kentucky implemented a policy in Fall that requires all finalized master's theses and doctoral dissertations to be submitted to UKnowledge and made freely accessible online. Depositing theses and dissertations in UKnowledge enhances their online visibility and discoverability. It does not require authors to transfer copyright to the university. Templates for theses and dissertations are available online. Information about preparing theses and dissertations are available here.
I have pondered on this particular question a great deal over the last few years. I suspect it means different things in different fields of study. Perhaps for a scientist there is more pressure to say something original? Or is there less? Does your PhD thesis have to say something no one else is saying or very few are?
I happen to have encountered well-trained professionals and support during the entire process! I cant believe how the writer 31216 could finish my 10 pages essay just in 3 days despite the fact that I gave him/her 7 days! It looks 10 times better than it would have if Id have done it myself!
