It also provides academic staff and students with an overview of recent developments in this area. It covers specific issues, ranging from why it is useful to make this form of research output accessible on the web and how to persuade university managers that this is so, to practical advice on including Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETDs) in institutional repositories and the training that should be provided to students who are being encouraged to express their research results in multimedia format, to submitting their work in accordance with new regulations. The book concludes with examples of best practice from a number of countries around the world.
