Frequently Asked Questions
Are master's theses indexed in Digital Dissertations (or in the print equivalent, Dissertation Abstracts)?
While master's theses can be indexed in Digital Dissertations, they are not automatically submitted to Proquest, the publisher of Digital Dissertations. Students must specifically request that the thesis be included and fill out a form authorizing the Graduate School to submit the thesis. In practice, very few master's theses appear in Digital Dissertation.
