Shodhganga: a reservoir of Indian Theses
Theses and dissertations are known to be the rich and unique source of information, often the only source for research work that does not find its way into various publication channels. Doctoral dissertations are manifestation of result of four to five years of intense work involving huge investment of resources, both mental and physical and infrastructure and other support from the universities. A thesis reflects quality of research work conducted by a student and the ability of an institution to lead and support original work of research in a given discipline.
Shodhganga, a web portal, provides a platform for researchers to deposit their Ph.D. theses and make it available to the entire scholarly community in open access for the use of further research. The repository has the ability to capture, index, and store, disseminate and preserve ETDs submitted by the researcher’s. It is supported by Inflibnet. As per the UGC Regulation, the responsibility of hosting, maintaining and making the digital repository of Indian Electronic Theses and Dissertation (Shodhganga) accessible to all institutions and universities is assigned to the INFLIBNET Centre.
