Masters Theses and Doctoral Dissertations

Citing Theses and Dissertations 

(CSE 8th; 29.3.7.5)

Bibliography citations for master's theses and doctoral dissertations are formatted using basic elements very similar to those found in citations to other print documents (e.g author, title, place of publication, publisher, date of publication, and extent).

Required citation elements include the author(s), , publication date, document title, place of publication, publisher.

Optional elements include  extent (i.e. pagination) and notes.  The notes field can be used to provide granting/sponsorship information or to indicate alternative sources for the document (e.g. ProQuest Dissertations & Theses Global).

Citing Theses and Dissertations 

(CSE 8th; 29.3.7.5.6 and 29.3.7.2.10)

Section-specific citation elements include the name of the section/part with any enumeration (e.g. Book 2, Chapter 5, Section 2) and the title of the section/part.

Optional elements include  extent (i.e. pagination) and notes.  The notes field can be used to provide granting/sponsorship information or to indicate alternative sources for the document (e.g. ProQuest Dissertations & Theses Global).
