ETD Tools


Editorial Document Management System (EDM)

Submit your thesis or dissertation and track the submission of data related to the ETD process through this convenient and easy-to-use online portal. The system provides a communication mechanism between the Graduate School Editorial staff, the graduating student, and the faculty advisor. The system is synchronous with GIMS (Graduate Information Management System) which records data about your graduate academic record. At the end of the ETD process, the system transfers all ETDs to the Institutional Repository (IR@UF). Click on the link above to access the EDM system.
