All graduate students working on a thesis must register for each term until they have completed the requirements for their degree program.
Please note that requirements are considered complete when one electronic copy of the thesis, in PDF format revised as recommended by the Thesis Examining Committee and finally approved by the supervisor/committee, is submitted to the School of Graduate Studies through the E-Thesis Submission process in QSpace, Queen's Research Repository.
A thesis submitted to QSpace is available to the broad community. As a publicly assisted university we have a responsibility to make research accessible to the public so that it may be used to enhance understanding, foster discussion and debate, and promote the generation of new ideas and approaches. Occasionally there may be cause to restrict access to a thesis for a period of time – please click on ‘Restriction of Thesis’ below to learn more.

Permission from co-authors is always necessary if you are including full articles that have been published elsewhere (i.e. a manuscript style thesis). Please use the [Permission of Co-Authors] form to get permission and signatures from your co-authors.
In most cases, publishers will allow for journal articles and book chapters to be included in manuscript style theses without additional permissions. Check your publication agreements, the author rights section of the publisher site or the SHERPA RoMEO website for more information about what your publisher allows.
