Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University provides access to master’s theses submitted since 1988.

Each Daytona Beach master’s degree candidate is required to submit a copy of his or her master’s thesis to the Hunt Library in electronic and print formats. The electronic version of the thesis will be uploaded to Scholarly Commons. For more information on submitting a master’s thesis, please consult Thesis Binding and Submission Process.

Since the inception of Scholarly Commons, requests by researchers from other institutions (academic, commercial, military, and government) to read our graduate research theses have grown tremendously, and continue to increase every semester. To meet this demand, ERAU began offering our entire Master’s Theses collection as open access in December 2016.

For Dissertation and Thesis submission information please visit the PhD Dissertation and Master's Thesis Homepage.

If you do not wish your thesis to be open access, please email your name and title of your thesis to commons@erau.edu. Your thesis will be restricted to ERAU students, faculty, and staff within three business days.
