Online Thesis Listings

Here are a list of theses from Academic’s that are online. If you’re looking for a UK or Irish PhD thesis, they are freely available via The British Library’s Ethos (Electronic Theses Online Service) system – you’ll just need to register. If you’re the first person to request a particular thesis then you’ll have to pay a fee for it to be scanned – if however someone else has already requested it (and had it scanned), then the Thesis is free for you.

It’s also worth checking out NUI Galway Theses listing (ARAN – Access to Research at NUI Galway).
