We’re happy to present several data visualizations to give an overall sense of the OATD.org collection by county of publication, language, and field of study.
OATD.org aims to be the best possible resource for finding open access graduate theses and dissertations published around the world. Metadata (information about the theses) comes from over 1100 colleges, universities, and research institutions. OATD currently indexes 5,153,410 theses and dissertations.
- These full-text PDFs are freely accessible to researchers inside or outside of the Princeton University community. Please note, some of the dissertations may be subject to a two-year embargo. Until the embargo expires these dissertations, in their hard-copy form, are only available for use while in the reading room at the Seeley G. Mudd Manuscript Library.
Beginning fall 2011, newly submitted Princeton University doctoral dissertations have been made available through Princeton’s institutional repository, DataSpace.

INDEX and FULL-TEXT of DISSERTATIONS are available through the University Libraries’ subscription to the database titled ProQuest Dissertations & Theses Global (Alternate title: PQDT).” Per the provider, this “is the world’s most comprehensive collection of dissertations and theses from around the world, spanning from 1743 to the present day and offering full text for graduate works added since 1997, along with selected full text for works written prior to 1997.”
Dissertations not included in the full-text database, might be available to borrow from other institutions and may be ordered through InterLibrary Loan or purchased through ProQuest’s Dissertation Express.
