ProQuest Dissertations and Theses - Full Text
Alternate Titles: Dissertation Abstracts
Formerly known as Dissertation Abstracts, the PQDT database includes citations to (or the full text of) doctoral dissertations from 1861 to present and citations only to masters theses from 1988 to present. (Thesis coverage is selective rather than comprehensive as many institutions do not submit masters theses for inclusion). The records for dissertations published since July 1980 include 350-word abstracts.
The database offers full text for most of the dissertations added since 1997 and strong retrospective full text coverage for older graduate works.
More than 70,000 new full text dissertations and theses are added to the database each year through dissertations publishing partnerships with 700 leading academic institutions worldwide and collaborative retrospective digitization of dissertations through UMI's Digital Archiving and Access Program. Full Text dissertations are archived as submitted by the degree-granting institution. Some will be native PDF, some PDF image.
