[EP-tech] thesis type

Hi Mary,

I just noticed that the phrase id should be 
eprint_fieldopt_thesis_type_engd (not eprints).

Also what Andy said in his reply might be somewhat applicable. Over time 
there has been some conflation about the thesis_type and thesis_name 
fields.  Originally the former was to define the level of qualification 
(e.g. masters, doctoral, post-doctoral) and thesis_name was intended for 
the name of the qualification (e.g. PhD, EngD, MSc, MBA, etc.).  It 
looks like you field is labelled "Thesis Type" but the options look to 
be more similar to those that you would find in thesis_name.  Maybe you 
have both fields defined but only thesis_type enabled (i.e. in the 
eprint workflow) and someone has modified the options to make them more 
like thesis_name.  This should become apparent when you look at 
eprint_fields.pl.

I have assumed you are running EPrints version 3.3.x.  If you are 
running EPrints 3.4.x then things might be a little bit more complicated.

Regards

David Newman
