ProQuest Dissertations & Theses

Alternative Titles
PQDT, ProQuest Digital Dissertations (PQDD)
Dissertation Abstracts, Diss. Abs., Diss Abs
Index to Theses
Description

Indexing & authors' abstracts for most doctoral dissertations and some masters theses accepted each year in the United States and Canada (since 1861), plus thousands more from Great Britain and Ireland (since 1716), and selected other universities around the world (as far back as 1637).  Includes full-text (in PDF) of most* dissertations submitted at University of Michigan and the 14 other CIC/Big Ten Universities since 1997. 

[Note: Currently access is also provided to the full text of many additional dissertations from additional institutions, but this expanded full text access is temporary.]

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

1) 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.  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.

2) Increasingly, universities are requiring that doctoral degree candidates deposit their dissertations into the university's online repository, and changing submission to ProQuest from a requirement to an option.  For example, as of 2012, University of Michigan requires deposit of dissertations into its Deep Blue online repository, and no longer requires submission to ProQuest.  To the extent that authors elect not to submit their dissertations to ProQuest, its listings for dissertations will become gradually less complete over time.  (Its listings for dissertations filed at U-M in 2012 are about 80% complete.)
