How Do I Find - Theses & Dissertations

Theses Discovery Services  |  Theses Discovery Services (By Country)  |  Theses Discovery Services (By Subject)


The services listed here provide access to a range of digital theses.  Most, but not all, are open access services.  Where the service is fee-based or available only to University staff and students, this is indicated. 

A geographic location is added where it is an aid to understanding the range of the service – this does not mean all content is from this location.

Researchers should search a range of these services to obtain a comprehensive set of search results as no one service is comprehensive.

Researchers looking for a thesis from a known institution should search directly in the repository service for that institution.
