July 2020

Abstract

The data in this collection comprises the bibliographic metadata for all UK doctoral theses listed in EThOS, the UK's national thesis service. We estimate the data covers around 98% of all PhDs ever awarded by UK Higher Education institutions, dating back to 1787. Thesis metadata from every PhD-awarding university in the UK is included. You can investigate and re-use this unique collection of UK universities' PhD thesis data to analyse trends in postgraduate research, make connections between researchers, apply large data analysis, improve citation of theses and many more applications.
