چکیده

Objective: Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETDs) programs have been recognized as a relatively new and effective channel through which information resources can be made available to academics and beyond.‎ This study aims to provide empirical evidence of the impact of ETD programs in the scientific communities.‎
Method: Records containing citations to theses and dissertations (TDs) in Scopus database from 1970 to 2017 are retrieved through a structured query.‎ Trends of the citations of TDs in academic literature in different subject areas are examined.‎ In additions, online search of a random sample of citation records on Google Scholar and BASE provided more insight of the impact of ETD programs, with a focus on open access.‎
Findings: According to the Scopus database, there is an obvious increasing trend in citing TDs in academic literature.‎ In all four broad subject areas, there is an increasing trend in citing TDs, in particular from 1996 onward.‎ The analysis of the random sample and the survey provide complementary elements for a better understanding of this trend, of the role of ETD programs and of the impact of accessibility via institutional repositories.‎
