Finding Dissertations

This video and the alternative PowerPoint slides will show you how to find dissertations: in general, written at NU, written in my program, supervised by my advisor, and written using a particular theoretical framework. 

 

Where can I find DLP dissertations?
Use  Digital Repository Service: NU Dissertations and Theses

and limit results to Degree Level ---> DLP

DRS Theses and Dissertations screen with limit results option

DLP Thesis and IRB Information

Dissertations Online

 Submitting dissertations and theses online

DLP theses are available in the Digital Repository Service (DRS).  HINT! Limit your search by degree level to find DLP materials.

NU dissertations online are also searchable at Dissertations and Theses at NU.

To search for dissertations beyond NU, use ProQuest Dissertations and Theses, Global.

 

Writing Assistance for Your Dissertation

 

Northeastern Writing Center staff members work with all varieties of academic writing, including dissertations. The Center provides online meetings in addition to in-person sessions, so staff are used to working with distance students.  Book an appointment here!

Many DLP students also look at dissertations submitted by their predecessors in the program.  We've been told that it's helpful to see how others have structured and presented their findings.  Here's a link to the electronic DLP papers in our digital repository.

You also may want to contact one of the members of your committee for guidance.  Thesis/dissertation advisors can sometimes direct you to additional experts in the field who may be willing to comment on your work.

The Purdue OWL (Online Writing Lab) is an extraordinary resource for all aspects of paper writing, including citation and bibliography.  The Site Map is a good place to begin.
