Recently, I started to work on a modified version of OJS 1.1.9/10, so that the application can be used for electronic theses and dissertations. It is just a sideline for now, so it will take a while. It should be able to handle hundreds of theses and dissertations each year. Is anyone planning to look into this too?

I have played with Virginia Tech's EDT application. This application is written in Perl. It is quite good, but it seems that after 1997, the year it was written, the development came to a virtual standstill. As far as I know, this is the only EDT software currently available. Customizing Virginia Tech's EDT software does not seem to be very easy.

[VT's EDT is at: and]

Thank you.

ETD Software

Postby ramon » Wed Jul 20, 2005 6:18 am


At Ibict, we developed an ETD software called TEDE, developed with PHP and MySQL. The site is in portuguese, and is being migrated to a new server, so the links may not all work.

There are 2 versions:
TEDE Modular - for Universities, providing a complete distribution of tasks through many actors (system admin, the postgraduate staff, students and library), each having a specific role and activities.

TEDE Simplificado - provides a publication system for a Library to publish ETDs without the involvement of all the actors.

Both versions are OAI-PMH compliant, since we are the National ETD Digital Library, called BDTD...

For more information, comments and suggestions, acces our specific forum at

We'd appreciate any input as to security issues, bugs and the like in our software too.
