TAMU-CC students, faculty, and staff have access to the Dissertations & Theses Global Full Text (Pro Quest) database. Only recent dissertations done at TAMU-CC can be found here, usually in full text. Emails and texts submitted outside of these hours will be responded to on the next business day. TAMU does not discriminate on the basis of an individual’s disability and complies with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) as amended.
Authors of copyrightable works that are not owned by the system, its members, or another party such as a research sponsor, own the copyright in their works and are free to publish them, register the copyright, and receive any revenues which may result.
Accordingly, copyrightable works may be owned by the student/author/creator, by multiple individuals (such as a research team or co-authors of a publication), by the System, by a System member, or by another party such as a research sponsor.
Engaging in unauthorized research can result in severe penalties for non-compliance.
All students are urged to complete responsible conduct of research training early in their programs to support their efforts in conducting research responsibly and ethically.
The dissertations can be searched in several ways, including issue date, author and subject.
During Fall and Spring semesters, Ask Us Services are available: M-Th: 8 a.m.
Factors that require consideration in determining ownership include: It is required that the student identify in the thesis, dissertation or record of study any collaborators, contributors, and sources of financial support (unless prohibited through contractual agreements) in carrying out the research or in publications presented in the thesis/dissertation/record of study.
It is also required that the student clearly indicate what the student’s independent contributions were to the work.
A student will be required to state his/her commitment on examinations, research papers, and other academic work.
Ignorance of the rules does not exclude any member of the Texas A&M community from the requirements or the processes of the Honor System.
