ProQuest Dissertations & Theses Global

ProQuest Dissertations & Theses Global

ProQuest Dissertations & Theses Global is a database of doctoral dissertations and master's theses from institutions around the world. It includes records for international dissertations beginning in 1637 and U.S. dissertations beginning in 1861 (the year the first doctoral dissertation was accepted at a U.S. institution). It covers all academic disciplines, and it is updated every semester with newly completed dissertations and theses.

The database includes the full text of most dissertations and theses added after 1997; for earlier years, it may contain only indexing or indexing and abstracts. Many dissertations and theses are available for purchase using the "Order a Copy" link. However, some authors have chosen not to make their works available to view or purchase.

To search only dissertations and theses completed at Rutgers, please use Dissertations & Theses @ Rutgers University.  To view digital theses and dissertations hosted in Rutgers’ own repository, please use RUcore: Rutgers Electronic Theses & Dissertations (RUetd).
