We aim to store and manage theses, dissertations and projects electronically. Our Thesis Retention Policy explains what is held by us.
Any user internal or external can access full text University of Greenwich PhD theses directly from GALA, Ethos, and (indirectly via) LibrarySearch. University of Kent and Canterbury Christ Church University students and staff should read the information available on the Drill Hall Library website for guidance.
In the LibrarySearch filter search results by Library Location 'Thesis Collection' and Format 'Repository' from the Library Resources menu. Follow the link to GALA or Ethos from each record.
You can find other research theses from ProQuest Dissertations and Theses Full Text: UK & Ireland and ProQuest Dissertations and Theses Full Text: The Humanities and Social Sciences Collection via LibrarySearch in the My Learning/Learning Support pages in the university portal.
Theses can be accessed by searching the open access repositories of universities and institutions containing their research outputs. Repositories are indexed by search engines so you will find them in web search results. Additionally you can search CORE (Connecting Repositories); Directory of Open Access Repositories and the Registry of Open Access Repositories.
In 2009, the decision was made in support of the University's Research Strategy to develop an institutional repository, to enable increased visibility and impact of academic research and individual researchers within the worldwide scholarly research community. During this project, a process was undertaken to gather and preserve as much University of Greenwich research material as possible dating back up to 7 years. This included digitising all PhD theses held in the library from this period.
All theses uploaded to GALA during this project are subject to section 2.0 of the Institutional Repository Takedown policy, which outlines the process to be undertaken if you wish to request a thesis from this period to be removed from the public view.
You can search Trove (Australia) which includes digital theses; DART Europe; Dissertations Express (US theses); Theses Canada; Theses.fr; National Library of Theses and Dissertations in Taiwan and Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations (NDLTD) and South African Theses and Dissertations.
A small representative samples (of best practice as decided by the Faculties), of final year projects produced as part of undergraduate and taught postgraduate degrees. If they are available they are held electronically in the relevant research methods Moodle course for your degree programme.
