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.
Advanced research and scholarship. Theses and dissertations, free to find, free to use.
This repository, managed by the Consorci de Serveis Universitaris de Catalunya (CSUC), and sponsored by the Generalitat (government) of Catalonia, has the following goals:
- To publicise, around the world and on the Internet, the results of university research.
- To offer the authors of theses a tool to increase public access to their work, enhancing its visibility.
- To stimulate the open scientific production.
The thesis will be made public (parts of it may have already been published as articles in international journals during the PhD). Dissertations from Dutch universities generally meet the highest academic standards and are therefore held in high regard.

The dissertation is the capstone piece of the PhD education. It represents an independent and original piece of scholarship and demonstrates the doctoral candidate’s mastery of both content material and the research process. Doctoral candidates complete their dissertation after finishing coursework, passing their comprehensive exams and receiving approval for their thesis proposal from their dissertation committee.
Students work closely with their PhD supervisor and committee while conducting their PhD research and in writing the dissertation. The final product typically consists of three article-length chapters, an introduction and a conclusion.
