Abstract

The Shodhganga repository has been set up for conserving the doctoral dissertations submitted by Indian Research Institutions. The modus operandi for conserving the research theses is absolutely an electronic one. Many Indian universities have signed a Memorandum of understanding with INFLIBNET for contributing to the Shodhganga intellectual reservoir. Some universities fail to realize the significance of the research platform that accommodates the research thesis for futurity. Therefore, the present study identifies the contribution made by the universities in Jammu and Kashmir to Shodhganga with convenient sampling as one of the techniques. The study establishes that the University of Kashmir tops in contributing electronic theses and dissertations to Shodhganga, followed by the University of Jammu and others. This paper also discusses the various ways of improving the contribution towards the aforesaid repository; it also answers the question: ‘Why is significant to upload the thesis on Shodhganga?’
