This guide provides information about locating dissertations and theses, both those completed at Stanford University and those from other universities.
With these characteristics in mind, research in theses and dissertations can provide an introduction to existing scholarship in a given area through the literature reviews that the papers frequently contain, as well as awareness of emerging trends through the innovative work of their authors.
