Search Dissertations

More than 3,550 dissertations have been registered with the DISCCRS and DIALOG programs since their inception in 2002 and 1993 respectively. The combined registry is international in scope, with citizens of more than 85 countries participating to date and nearly 50% of Ph.D.s registered outside the U.S. Demographic information is collected with abstracts, and statistical information is reported on a biennial basis. Use the navigation links in the left-hand margin to register your dissertation, for symposium application instructions, and other program and symposium reports and resources for enhancing interdisciplinary and early-career development.

Dissertation abstracts are fully searchable; search results will include anything in the citation or dissertation abstract.

Currently the number of dissertation registrations is: 3,626.
