Psychiatry: Dissertations & theses

Dissertations and theses: an introduction

Until fairly recently, theses were only available in print in the institution where the thesis was registered. Now, institutions are digitising their theses to make them publicly available. UKZN's repository for online masters and PhD theses is called ResearchSpace.

  • Many theses can be identified on Google and Google Scholar and downloaded from there. Otherwise go to the institutional website.
  • The Library has a page listing some international and national theses collections
  • For South African theses, consult Current and Completed Research or Union Catalogue of theses .
