Following Parts I and II, quasi-cyclic codes of given index are studied as codes over a finite polynomial ring. These latter codes are decomposed by the Chinese Remainder Theorem (CRT), or equivalently the Mattson-Solomon transform, into products of shorter codes over larger alphabets. We characterize and enumerate self-dual one-generator quasi-cyclic codes in that context. We give an algorithm to remove some equivalent codes from that enumeration. A generalization to multigenerator codes is sketched.
