Theses and dissertations

tekijä: Tuija Irmeli Oksman Viimeisin muutos tiistai 21. kesäkuuta 2022, 15.12

Theses and dissertations are useful when you are defining your topic. Note that theses should not be used as actual sources since a univerisity thesis is a learning project and seldom at sufficient scholarly level to be used as a source.

Theses and dissertations are good for background information, as they often contain a literature review and /or a summary of the research tradition of the particular topic. Hence, take a look at their bibliography!

New theses are usually openly accessible online. Older print theses are available in microfilms, or you can order them from storage or through interlibrary loan.
