Doctoral theses from other universities

If you can not find what you are looking for in Supersearch, you can find more doctoral theses in national and international search engines. The national search engines Libris and Swepub both provide access to freely available doctoral theses in full text, as well as references to printed doctoral theses held by different libraries in Sweden. Limit your search under publication or material type.

To find doctoral theses outside of the Swedish search engines, you can use the international library catalogue WorldCat. In WorldCat you will find full text links or references to printed doctoral theses held by libraries all over the world.
