Is there Peer Review?

DELRdi does not assess submitted work in any way. Rather, documents are described not evaluated. DELRdi citations provide a record of what an author was thinking and writing about at a specific time and place. Documents do not necessarily represent the opinions of NDEO.


What is included in a citation?

DELRdi citations include full bibliographic information, description/abstract of the document and links to its full text location. With copyright holder's permission full text will be uploaded as well.


How do I submit?

Whether you want a citation listing or a citation with full text listing, full text must be provided for review preparation. If PDF or word document is not available, contact regarding submitting hard copies. The document must include author’s name, document title, name of granting institution, year of completion, degree earned, and physical location of the document including UMI/ProQuest Publication numbers if applicable. Also the document contents must include all pages, full bibliography, and all appendices. For full text inclusion, not simply citation, documents must be submitted electronically as PDF or word document.
