Ivanović, L., Ivanović, D., & Surla, D. (2012). A data model of theses and dissertations compatible with CERIF, Dublin Core and EDT-MS. Online Information Review, 36(4), 548-567.

The paper proposes a data model of theses and dissertations which enables interoperability with CERIF compatible CRIS systems. A software system based on the proposed model can become a member of NDLTD and exchange metadata with institutional repositories. The proposed model increases availability of theses and dissertations.
