Ethos is the British Library digital repository for UK research theses offering a central access point to UK doctoral theses. The majority of universities in the UK are members. You can cross-search over 500,000 theses including those available for immediate download.
You must first register on an individual basis with Ethos in order to make requests through the Ethos website. The Ethos site provides further information.
In some cases the first person (or their institution) to request a thesis is required to pay for the cost of digitisation. In the first instance researchers should refer to the Director of Research and Enterprise or their supervisor in the school about recovering costs from school research funds.
Immediate download for theses already digitised. For theses not yet digitised you will need to contact the library of the university where the paper thesis is held to request access.
University of Greenwich theses are uploaded to GALA and harvested into Ethos allowing you to search and download from from either source.
Visit our theses and dissertations page to find out more about finding PhD theses within and beyond the university.
