How to Find a Sample
So that you are able to write a great PhD thesis, you should
first grasp the basics of how to start one. Your PhD
thesis should contain the following basic elements:-
- Hypothesis Statement
- Literature Review
- Research Methodology
- Analysis of Data
- and finally the Conclusion.
These thesis writing basics are explored in greater
detail via various books that can either be bought from
bookshops (or ordered through amazon) or they may be available
from your University library. Failing this, you can
simply find sample theses on the internet.
The main advantage of scouring through other PhD theses is that
you can get a thorough overview of what is required of you,
although each and every University has a different way of how
they want you to structure your PhD thesis. So I
would recommend that you check fully with your professor or
University first of how they would like you to write the thesis
first, before you even think about starting to write the first
So back to finding a sample thesis online, our own
research has found a site called Scholarius (http://www.scholarius.com)
which allows users to upload and download PhD theses for
free, however when we checked it there were less than 10
PhD theses on the site.
We also found another site that contains academic theses called
www.theses.com, they claim
to have over 500,000 online theses in their
collection. This however is not a free
service, but rather one where you have to pay each time you
access a thesis.
So back to the drawing board then, the best way to find a
sample thesis is to ask your University professor for examples
of previous theses or to scour through your University library
Good Luck with your search!
