Kits: What Do I Do After the Form and Style Review?

What Do I Do After the Form and Style Review?

Editors will return the reviewed document with corrections, recommendations, and suggested changes via MS Word’s Track Changes function and comment bubbles. Students will work with their chairperson to revise the document after they receive the editor’s review. Once the document is polished and complete, and after final committee and CAO approval, the final document will be published in ProQuest.

  • ProQuest is the database that archives and disseminates Walden dissertations and doctoral studies after documents receive final approval from the CAO’s office (final step before graduation).
  • ProQuest’s Preparing Your Manuscript Guide
  • ProQuest’s Copyright Guide will help students ensure that their manuscripts meet copyright requirements for using and reprinting information and that there is no risk of infringement.
  • Students should determine whether they would like to copyright their own dissertation, doctoral study, or project study and be ready to make that choice when uploading to ProQuest. In order to be prepared to make that decision, students can review ProQuest’s Copyright and Your Dissertation or Thesis: Ownership, Fair Use, and Your Rights and Responsibilities document.
