CUNY Dissertation Publication Options
Stephen Kleinon 20 September 2013
Transcript of CUNY Dissertation Publication Options
Traditional vs. Open Access:
Your dissertation title, abstract only are publicly available via the ProQuest dissertation (PQDT) database.
Readers using a PQDT library license get full text.
Readers without a PQDT license buy individually:
$37 PDF; $39 unbound; $71 hardcover
Authors get 10% sales royalty for 25 yrs, payable @ $25 threshold.
ProQuest's Open Access Publishing Plus
Broadest possible distribution.
Supported by a $95 author fee.
Makes a dissertation is free online to anyone through PQDT.
Select search engine discovery to optimize (next option).
CUNY Institutional Repository
Free Open Access dissertation publishing.
If major search engines can discover your diss :
Your dissertation is more likely to be found, read, and cited.
Your abstract (name, title, keywords) provides metadata for search engine matches.
Only abstracts are discoverable.
UNLESS a reader uses a library licensed PQDT database or purchases a copy OR UNLESS an author selects Open Access Publishing Plus.
If your dissertation is sold by 3rd party retailers...
Option is relevant only if traditionally published.
PQDT releases your diss to online sellers (Amazon, GoogleBooks) discoverable by search engines. This impacts your choice about search engine discoverability.
All 3rd party sales generate royalties.
Does e-publishing = market threat to publishers?
Surveys suggest E-publishing = negligible threat to publishers (revision, quality most important).
Embargo prevents readership that may increase publisher interest.
Add image, video, sound files to supplement your dissertation.
The library + ProQuest will support formats not currently accommodated, e.g. an entire website, OMEKA, Wordpress.
Embargoed works provide no market threat to publishers
There is little evidence that suggests that Open Access & discoverable works threaten publishers either.
Embargoed works provide no measure of market interest for publishers.
Delaying release, embargo:
•Prevents distribution in any format to every reader (even buyers and subscribers).
•6-month, 1-year, or 2-year embargo options at the time of deposit.
•ProQuest will extend embargo upon request.
•CUNY requires no petition to embargo.
