Finding Theses

A thesis is a substantial document presenting the author's research and findings, submitted in support of candidature for an academic degree.  You may wish to find relevant theses:

  • to read about research in more detail than the word-limit of a journal article allows
  • when your topic is not well covered by the journal article literature
  • to see an example of what is required for your own submission
  • where you have a reference to a thesis

Using PhD theses in research: EThOS
