Dissertations & Theses @ University of Michigan

Alternative Titles
ProQuest Dissertations & Theses @ University of Michigan
Current Research @ University of Michigan, Dissertations @ UM, Dissertations@UM
PQDT, Dissertation Abstracts, Diss. Abs., Diss Abs
Description

Describes most dissertations filed at University of Michigan, with full text for most* since 1990.  A subset of the ProQuest Dissertations & Theses database.

*Two factors cause a certain percentage of dissertations not to be included:

1) Since 2012, the University of Michigan requires the full text of all new dissertations to be deposited in its institutional repository Deep Blue, which therefore is the most complete repository for dissertations filed at U-M in 2012 and thereafter.  Since 2008, deposit of the full text of newly filed dissertations with ProQuest has been optional and not required if deposit has been made into Deep Blue.  Since 2012, coverage of U-M dissertations in ProQuest has declined significantly, from about 80% to only 25% to 20% in 2013 and 2014.

2) Authors of dissertations have the right to restrict access to the full text of their dissertation from all ProQuest databases and document delivery services if they so choose.  (They also have the right to restrict access in U-M's Deep Blue repository for up to three years after the dissertation is filed.)  Some publishers recommend or require blocking of access to the full text of a dissertation as a condition of publishing a revised version of a dissertation as a scholarly book.  If access to a dissertation listed in ProQuest has been restricted by the author, a notification of this appears in the full record display, to the right, above the MGet It button.
