Dissertations Full Text

An incredible amount of scholarly, easily-accessed information can be found in dissertations.  Use them to find:

  • a comprehensive bibliography on your topic
  • a discussion of the research problem, and ongoing needs (the "Introduction")
  • chapters treating your topic (table of contents--particularly detailed in dissertations)

 

1. Dissertations full text (PQDT) - ProQuest Dissertations and Theses Global - except for a handful of schools and old thesis, essentially all full-text dissertations from North American universities.  British dissertatons are now also represented. 90% of the theses here are full-text.

2. British dissertations (EThOS) - British Library's service of UK dissertations.  Not as comprehensive as PQDT, but worth searching.
