Debate continues on dissertation ’embargos’ following the recent statement by the American Historical Association (AHA). A previous post on this website discussed the AHA statement and criticisms of its policy recommendations.
The Chronicle of Higher Education explores the issue through the eyes of a recent Ph.D. in History who has had trouble publishing her dissertation and wishes that she could have embargoed it.
Former AHA President William Cronon has written a post on AHA Today in defense of the AHA statement advocating policies on dissertation embargos. The AHA Today also has a Q&A page on this controversy.
