Open Access Theses and Dissertations is a new search engine for locating open access graduate theses and dissertations published around the world. It’s important to note that the search engine does not search the full-text of the theses, but rather the metadata drawn from the records of university repositories, consortia, or OCLC WorldCat. Still, it is a good supplement to other resources such as the Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations, ProQuest Theses and Dissertations, and the Theses Canada portal.
Theses are great sources of deep analysis and reliable statistics. They are a secret weapon in my research toolbox.
