Together, integration and linkage of unique and persistent identifiers helps the student as they apply for fellowships, grants, and jobs, and also provides a means for the insitution to follow the scholarly work of their former students.

As part of the European Commission-supported ODIN Project, the British Library have now made it possible for researchers and scholars to import their thesis listed in the ETh OS database into their ORCID record using a newly-developed search and link wizard.
The tool currently pulls the thesis metadata from ETh OS and pushes it into ORCID, but in the future it will also attach the user's ORCID i D to the ETh OS record.
Figshare was an ORCID Early Adopter; this recent addition of "thesis" to the list of figshare research output types allows users can upload their thesis or dissertation, obtain a DOI, and link it to their ORCID identifier.
Texas A&M University (TAMU) is working to integrate the ORCID identifier at the point of deposit and publication, through integration in the Vireo Electronic Theses and Dissertation (ETD) submission and management system, in which the student's ORCID identifier is connected to their thesis during document deposit.
A student checklist is also available to use to check your document before submitting it TDS for review and approval.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding any of the steps, please contact Thesis and Dissertation Services in the Graduate School at [email protected] (903)886-5968.
The TDL Federated ETD Collection contains records of electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs) submitted by participating member institutions, making these otherwise hard-to-find scholarly works available to a much wider audience.
Prairie View A&M University (PVAMU) requires a dissertation or doctoral project for all doctoral candidates and a thesis for all thesis option master’s candidates.
By linking to document identifiers such as the ETh OS persistent identifier assigned by the British Library, the ORCID-ETh OS import tool increases the discoverability and visibility of the early work of researchers and scholars.
Researchers may also link to their graduate work using a new figshare metadata enhancement that distinguishes theses and dissertations from other datasets and documents.
