What is American Doctoral Dissertations?

EBSCO is proud to offer American Doctoral Dissertations, a free resource accessible to all researchers. American Doctoral Dissertations provides electronic access to the only comprehensive record of dissertations accepted by American universities during that time period, the print index Doctoral Dissertations Accepted by American Universities. Containing more than 172,000 theses and dissertations in total from 1902 to the present, it was created with the generous support of the H. W. Wilson Foundation and the Congregational Library & Archives in Boston.

Newly enhanced with an additional 80,000 citations for theses and dissertations, the new citations include a link to access the full text, when available, via the Institutional Repository where the thesis or dissertation is housed such as OhioLINK, Rochester Institute of Technology and North Carolina State University.

Be sure to set a bookmark for http://www.opendissertations.com. This link takes you directly to the American Doctoral Dissertations database. Make it a "favorite" so this free resource is available whenever you need it!

Or if you are an existing EBSCO customer and would like to have American Doctoral Dissertations added to your EBSCO Discovery Service or EBSCOhost profile, simply contact Technical Support.
