Should you have reason to place an embargo on your thesis in Durham e-Theses, please download, complete and email the Restricting Access to your Thesis form to the Graduate School at email@example.com. Your request must be authorised by both your primary Supervisor and Departmental Director of Postgraduate Research.
The Durham University Open Access policy not only applies to academic staff but also to Postgraduate Research students, if they publish in scholarly peer-reviewed publications.
Details of how to deposit in Durham Research Online (DRO) - Durham University's institutional open access repository - are in the DRO Deposit Guide. However, deposit is via the University's separate, but integrated system called the Staff Profile system. If you have the necessary permissions you will be able to connect to the Profile system using your ITS username and password. Please contact your Departmental Administrator should you fail to login.
