Thesis Publication


An embargo is also known as a thesis hold. You and your faculty advisor have the opportunity to place a hold (also known as an embargo) on your thesis if you are seeking publication in an academic journal or intend to submit the work for patent consideration.

  • 2-year Journal Hold
  • 2-year Patent Hold
  • Other as arranged with Undergraduate Research staff

Once your thesis is deposited to OAKTrust, it will be available for viewing by the public. You and your faculty advisor have the opportunity to place a hold (also known as an embargo) on your thesis if you are seeking publication in an academic journal or intend to submit the work for patent consideration.

At the end of a thesis hold term (typically 2 years), Undergraduate Research staff will contact your faculty advisor to confirm that the thesis can be released. If you do not place an embargo on your document, your thesis will be published at the end of the summer following your completion of the program.
