Shodhganga

  • reservoir of Indian Theses

  • platform for research students to deposit their Ph.D. theses

  • Make available for open access

  • Avoid duplication of work

Shodhgangotri

  • Synopsis as electronic version

  • Trend and direction of research

  • The word “Shodh” originates from Sanskrit and stands for “research and discovery”. “Gangotri” is one of the largest glacier in the Himalayas and source of origination of Ganges, the holiest, longest and largest of rivers in India. The Ganges is the symbol of age-long culture, civilization, ever-aging, ever-flowing, ever-loving and loved by its people.

  • Under the initiative called “Shodhgangotri”, research scholars / research supervisors in universities are requested to deposit electronic version of approved synopsis submitted by research scholars to the universities for registering themselves for the Ph.D programme. The repository on one hand, would reveal the trends and directions of research being conducted in Indian universities, on the other hand it would avoid duplication of research. Synopsis in “Shodhgangotri” would later be mapped to full-text theses in “Shodhganga”. As such, once the full-text thesis is submitted for a synopsis, a link to the full-text theses would be provided from Shodhgangotri to “Shodhganga”.
