English abstract

The idea of E- Theses and Dissertations (ETD) is coming up in International scenario, which can be easily located, readily accessible and delivered over the web. This paper analyzing the opinions of selected Ph D Researchers and Guides from selected Indian Universities on Copyright and IPR issues related to ETDs. On the basis of the output, the paper suggests that Universities can start collecting e-format of theses, creating a digital archive for easy access. But in terms of access, still only a minimum majority is favoring online global access to Indian research. This may be because of Copy Right Issues, Chances of Plagiarism and Poor Quality in Research, which may be solved through policy frameworks and enhancing standards through national agencies like UGC at national level.
