You should only click on "Start a new submission" if you made an error in your initial submission and need to resubmit your thesis, or if you are submitting two different senior theses, such as one for your home department, and a different thesis for a certificate program.
If your title or abstract has special characters, see La Tex Instructions. If you are the sole author of the thesis, select "No." If you collaborated on your thesis with others select "Yes." If you are submitting a multi-author thesis, your senior thesis file must include all coauthors’ names; and you and your coauthors must agree on an access level.
Access levels are explained on ODOC’s Thesis Archive webpage.
On this page you will enter information about your senior thesis. If your thesis has an abstract, copy and paste it from your PDF.
The abstract field is optional; if your thesis does not have one, leave the field blank.
