Guide: Theses & Dissertations

Searchable abstracts of theses from around the world are availble via Proquest's Dissertations and Theses.

The Index to Theses provides information on theses from Great Britain and Northern Ireland universities as far back as 1716. 

The EThoS service from the British Library also contains information about UK theses and there is increasing availability of full-text downloads, which are available once a library or individual has paid for digitization.

At this time Oxford theses are not available electronically via EThos but some can be found on ORA (the Oxford Research Archive).
