As part of the degree requirements for theses and dissertations, students hold a public defense and will have their document published electronically in the ASU Digital Repository and with ProQuest. Publication in the ASU Digital Repository is required; however, students may elect to delay (known as “embargo”) publication of their thesis/dissertation for a period of two years with support from their committee.

How can a student establish an embargo?
With submission of the embargo form, the student’s document will be embargoed for two years in both the ASU Digital Repository and ProQuest.
Students may place an indefinite embargo on their thesis or dissertation document with ProQuest after successful completion of their program. Students should submit their request directly to ProQuest, either by email (email@example.com) or by telephone (800-521-0600, ext. 77020).
These embargo guidelines apply to other culminating experience documents (such as bound documents and DMA research papers) that are required to go through format review and submission to ProQuest. Please check with your academic unit if unsure if this applies to your culminating experience.
Embargo questions can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
