ProQuest Dissertations and Theses: Global (PQDTGlobal) is now available to provide full-text access to theses and dissertations from institutions across the globe.
Previous access to ProQuest Dissertations and Theses only provided access to abstracts and brief previews for some documents. The upgrade to PQDTGlobal provides abstracts as well as full-text in PDF format for millions of documents from these main subject areas:
• Business and Economics
• Medical Sciences
• Social Sciences
PQDTGlobal includes millions of searchable citations to dissertations and theses from 1861 to the present day together with over a million full-text dissertations that are available for download in PDF format. Over 2.1 million titles are available for purchase as printed copies. The database offers full text for most of the dissertations added since 1997 and strong retrospective full-text coverage for older graduate works. It also includes PQDT UK & Ireland content.
Each dissertation published since July, 1980 includes a 350-word abstract written by the author. Master's theses published since 1988 include 150-word abstracts. Simple bibliographic citations are available for dissertations dating from 1637. Where available, PQDTGlobal provides 24-page previews of dissertations and theses.
