The thesis network’s member institutions
Since the launch of the STAR digital thesis referencing tool, ABES has managed the network of STAR correspondents.
As part of its work coordinating the national thesis system and launching theses.fr , ABES opted to identify a “thesis coordinator” in each of the authorised awarding institutions as a contact with the required overall knowledge of his or her local thesis circuit.
This contact’s job is to act as a communication interface between the different departments involved in thesis management at his or her institution (administrative registration, choosing a subject, organising the examination committee, referencing and distributing the thesis etc.) and also as an interface between the institution and ABES.
