Noticed this article in the San Francisco Chronicle courtesy of Academic Impressions Daily Impact, November 19, 2009. Seems that, beginning a few weeks ago, doctoral students at Stanford will be able to post their works online through Google rather than delivering hard copies. Says the ground-breaking Michael Keller Stanford’s library director among many other things, “while other universities already allow electronic submissions, we’re the only one we know of that’s going the whole route, with approval online and then sending it down the electronic pipe.” Master’s and honors papers will probably be added to this shortly as well. Students can embargo their work for up to 5 years to give them time to get it puiblished.
