Using PhD theses in research: EThOS

Finding PhD theses via EThOS

The British Library has set up EThOS, a service which enables individuals to register online at and access UK PhD theses. EThOS currently provides details of more than 500,000 theses, many of which are available electronically and can be downloaded from EThOS.

See the article on Self Help for information on how to use EThOS.

EThOS will pick up any University of Plymouth PhDs. You can also find them, along with University of Plymouth Masters Dissertations, in PEARL, the University's own institutional repository. You can locate PEARL on Primo under Databases > M > Masters Dissertations. Login using the 'University of Plymouth account' login link from the top right hand corner.
