The deadlines for submitting a thesis, project or dissertation for review are listed below. Please do your best to format your manuscript before submitting it to CSUSB ScholarWorks. This will speed up the process and help to ensure that your manuscript is accepted for publication by the publication deadline. Due to changes in the submission deadlines, thesis reviewers have less time to review each manuscript; therefore, poorly formatted manuscripts that need multiple reviews may not be accepted by the publication deadline.

Submission Deadline: Turn in the Committee Certification Form at Graduate Studies, upload your manuscript on Scholarworks, and pay the Digital Archive and Review fee by this date. Students who do not meet the deadline must resubmit the following quarter. We encourage you to submit before the deadline! Please see the Manuscript Review Process for more information.

Publication Deadline: Complete all corrections for publication by this date. Do not wait until the publication deadline to submit your corrections - most manuscripts take 2-3 reviews. Allow several days for each review.
