A Free Index to Over 172,000 Key Dissertations

American Doctoral Dissertations has been expanded to offer greater coverage of 20th century research as well as access to full text.

Initially, this free research database provided access to the only comprehensive record of dissertations accepted by American universities between 1933 and 1955, the print index Doctoral Dissertations Accepted by American Universities.

Links to Full Text

The newly enhanced database includes more than 172,000 theses and dissertations in total, including 80,000 new citations for theses and dissertations from 1902 to the present.

The new citations include a link to access the full text, when available, via the Institutional Repository where the thesis or dissertation is housed, such as OhioLINK, Rochester Institute of Technology and North Carolina State University.

Researchers can access the free database at www.opendissertations.com and EBSCO customers can add the database to their profile by contacting Customer Support.

 

The database was created with the generous support of the H. W. Wilson Foundation and the Congregational Library & Archives in Boston.
