Overview of thesis databases

Reading other students‘ theses can help you in your own thesis writing process. Luckily, most universities have a thesis database. In these databases, you can find out who has written about your topic and how they approached it.

Some theses are only accessible via your university library, although more and more universities are opening the doors of their databases to the general public.
