  1. Dissertations and Theses as Open Access

    I would like to be able to have access to PQDT dissertations and theses without having to be part of a university subscription. It would be of benefit to many to make this research publicly available as Open Access.

  2. Accessible PDFs in PQDT

    PDFs inside PQDT are not ADA or WCAG compliant, so as a native screen reader I am unable to use PQDT for my research. Is there a way to create PDFs that are accessible to screen readers, or a different way of presenting the content within PQDT that is screen reader friendly?

  3. Justification of paying for PQDT with OA options

    As most of the theses are Open Access, I think it becomes harder and harder to justify paying for databases such as these. Base, Core, OpenAire, Ebsco Open Dissertations will yield most of the same results.
