Abstract: In 2002, the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) made funding available for a number of universities in the UK to undertake work relating to the development of theses in electronic format. Working in collaboration with the British Library, the universities considered issues ranging from advocacy and copyright to metadata and the selection of software for e-theses repositories. Two of the projects ended recently and the third is due to complete, on schedule, in 2005. This paper describes the key findings from one of these projects. Information is also provided about the ‘Electronic Theses Online Service’ (EThOS) project which has been funded by JISC for a period of eighteen months from January 2005. EThOS aims to deliver a fully operational, easily scalable and financially viable prototype UK e-theses online service which will allow the recommendations made by the earlier projects to be tested.
