What is OpenDissertations?

EBSCO is proud to offer OpenDissertations, a free resource accessible to all researchers. OpenDissertations is an open-access database built to assist researchers in locating both historic and contemporary dissertations and theses. Created with the generous support of the H.W. Wilson Foundation and the Congregational Library & Archives in Boston, it incorporates EBSCO’s previously released American Doctoral Dissertations, and features additional dissertation metadata contributed by select colleges and universities from around the world. Providing researchers with citations to graduate research across a span of time, from the early 20th century to the present, this database will continue to grow through regular updates and new partnerships with graduate degree-granting institutions.

Newly enhanced with an additional 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 This link takes you directly to the OpenDissertations 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 OpenDissertations added to your EBSCO Discovery Service or EBSCOhost profile, simply contact Technical Support.
