How to access digitised University of Edinburgh theses

Before you request a thesis

Look in the Edinburgh Research Archive (ERA), where an electronic version of the thesis you require may already be available on open access.

If what you want is not available on ERA, please contact us to request a scanned copy.

How to place a request

Contact the Centre for Research Collections where staff will advise if a thesis can be scanned, and how quickly it can be delivered electronically.

After the initial request, scanned theses will be made available in ERA, and therefore, will be free to access for future users.
