A more user friendly EThOS

Laptop with hand

In EThOS, the UK thesis service, a recent change has significantly improved the way theses are downloaded. Users no longer need to add the thesis to a basket before downloading and the process has been simplified throughout.

Published date:

The login and re-use agreement remain in place to provide assurance to thesis authors that the theses are being accessed for genuine research purposes.

This change responds to our User Survey carried out in late 2015 which told us this was one of the biggest frustrations for users. The change already appears to be having a positive effect on the number of downloads we are seeing in EThOS.
