Terry Ann C. Cayabyab

Abstract—Fast, worldwide interest spurred countries and organizations of the impact of theses and dissertations in electronic format; hence, the conception ETD. Regarded valuably in the research arena for data management, ETD mushroomed swiftly in developed countries. Compared to developing countries, isolated initiatives exist in few scholarly writings demonstrating some successful attempts while some projects are in its infancy stage if not chaotic. Aside from the concerns on intellectual property rights, findings in this review demonstrated the problems that emerged as consequences of the integration and collaboration of ETD projects that were designed and developed individually. This literature review aimed to show the emerging global concepts that could be used as benchmark for ETD initiatives to developing countries such as the Philippines.

Index Terms—ETD, challenge, goals, review of literature.
