Thesis Abstracts

IPJ hosts a regularly updated data base of American Indian related Ph.D. from 2006 – the present. The dissertation coverage includes all languages and is international in scope as far as Dissertation Abstracts covers. This includes most European universities, South African universities, and a few in the Far East. They do not cover all the universities in the world, but do a pretty good job covering first world universities. There is no coverage of Latin American universities' dissertations. The data base is updated in each Winter and Summer issue of IPJ, and sometimes between issues. Since ProQuest, the proviser of the lists of dissertations from which Jonathan and Jay find Indigenous dissertations, no longer goes by months/years there will be titles from various years added in the updates.
The majority of this list has been compiled by:
Jonathon Erlen, Ph.D., History of Medicine Librarian, Health Sciences Library System, University of Pittsburgh (ERLEN@pitt.edu)
and Jay Toth, M.A., Professor of Anthropology, SUNY Freedonia (jtoth@atlanticbb.net).


You may also submit your own dissertation using the link below, and it will be included once we have verified it.
