New: ProQuest Dissertations & Theses A&I

ProQuest Dissertations & Theses A&I indexes the world's most comprehensive collection of dissertations and theses from around the world, spanning from 1637 to the present day.

The label "A&I" (Abstracts & Index) indicates that this is an index which may also provide a summary of the content.  It does not include the full content of the documents. This is a trial subscription until the end of 2012; renewal will depend on use, demand and support for continuation of this service.

 JCU staff and students may access ProQuest Dissertations & Theses A&I directly, or from the Library Databases page.

Each dissertation published since July 1980 includes a 350-word abstract written by the author. Master's theses published since 1988 include 150-word abstracts. Simple bibliographic citations are available for dissertations dating from 1637. Where available, the service provides 24-page previews of dissertations and theses.
