ED 600: Introduction to Doctoral Research: Finding Dissertations

Why Use Dissertations?

Dissertations may be useful to your research in a variety of ways:

  • For EdD students, dissertations provide examples of how others have conducted their research and structured their dissertation
  • Dissertations are often useful sources of tests and measures that are freely available and have been assessed for validity and reliability.
  • Dissertations provide a thorough review of the literature; the bibliography may be a gold mine of additional relevant research on your topic.
