Points to Remember!
Astronomy Thesis Collection
This community, curated by astronomy librarians, aims to bring together astronomy and astrophysics theses and dissertations. Share the full-text of your cumulative, graduate or PhD level, research with the world by uploading it as open-access to this subject based community. Once added to the community, it can be indexed by ADS, searched for on Zenodo, and browsed to in the community page. The ADS indexes this community once a month.

- Curation policy:
- This collection includes theses and dissertations written to complete Masters or PhD requirements on topics in the fields of astronomy and astrophysics. Other publication types and topics will not be accepted; however, documents that supplement your thesis, such as data sets or videos, are welcome. Although Zenodo accepts all file formats, PDF is strongly preferred for publication submissions. Theses and dissertations written in any language will be accepted, but the metadata record should be created in English. If the NASA ADS has already indexed your thesis, provide us the Bibcode in the Alternate Identifier field before submitting the document.
