Here is brief timeline of the eCommons deposit history:
Before 2004: Digital versions of dissertations and theses (ETDs) were not routinely deposited in eCommons.
2004 to 2008: Students may choose to deposit their own work to eCommons directly.
2009 to 2016: Students submitted their ETDs to The Graduate School who then passed them to the library.
2017 to the present: Students submit their dissertations to ProQuest first and ProQuest then delivers the digital version to the library to be added to eCommons.
-- Authors may specify an embargo. Until 2017, this was five years, by default, renewable upon request. Starting in 2017, the maximum initial embargo is two years. Users may request access to ETDs from the author directly.
-- Some ETDs are withheld entirely to allow time for patent applications to be completed.

I thought it had something to do with writing a dissertation at the end of the degree... if you were to write it, and pass then you got yourself the Honours. If you were to not opt out of the dissertation, but still had to take exams to pass all other modules, then you got "only" the BA/BSc, etc...


The Program contributes to the integration of education and basic research through support of dissertation projects conducted by doctoral students enrolled in U.S. universities. This solicitation specifically addresses the preparation and evaluation of proposals for such Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement (DDRI) Grants. Dissertation research projects in all of the subareas of biological anthropology, whether conducted in specialized facilities or field settings, are eligible for support through these grants. These awards are intended to enhance and improve the conduct of dissertation research by doctoral students who are pursuing research in biological anthropology that enhances basic scientific knowledge.
