Where to find PhD Thesis online?

User: Anna10 - 24 August 2010 17:25


Does anyone know of any web sites where you can view completed PhD thesis? Can you access PhD thesis through SCOPUS?

don't know if this is helpful, but your supervisor/s will have copies of phd thesis that their past students have done. And they are usually really happy to let you have a look if you ask.

I tend to find thats useful, as different unis, departments, supervisors can have different expectations/standards/preferences. So to see ones that they personally have been happy for their students to submit is really helpful.

And if ETHOS have not digitised it they will try and track it down

Some people have elected not to have their PhD digitised but you should be able to get it from either British Library or the library of the university where it was awarded.

You are looking for free resources, not PhD dissertation writing service like this, right? I can’t think of other sources that haven’t been already mentioned. I believe it is worth to ask your supervisor for copies of works his previous students wrote. I did the same when I needed to take a look at original and highly evaluated thesis. Just don’t afraid to ask. That’s OK. However, just take a look at those works, don’t fall into the trap of copying them: your piece of writing should be unique and authentic 100%. That’s the rule of thumb for successful PhD thesis. Good luck!
