Abstract: The "Building Vibrant Research Culture through ETDs" initiative aims to enhance research culture in Sri Lanka and Bangladesh by promoting the use of Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETDs). ETDs offer numerous advantages over traditional print formats, including broader dissemination and improved visibility. This study outlines the initiative's objectives, including promoting ETD adoption, capacity development, establishing institutional repositories, enhancing visibility and accessibility, and encouraging interdisciplinary collaboration. It also discusses the factors influencing ETD usage in these countries. The research employs a systematic approach involving stakeholder engagement, policy development, capacity building, infrastructure development, and awareness and advocacy. The results indicate that ETDs significantly contribute to research output and interdisciplinary collaboration, ultimately supporting national development. This initiative presents a promising pathway to foster vibrant research cultures in Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, leveraging digital scholarship to enhance research visibility and access.
