Foundational Research

ProQuest™ Dissertations & Theses Citation Index

The ProQuest™ Dissertations & Theses Citation Index (PQDT) is the world's most comprehensive curated collection of multi-disciplinary dissertations and theses, offering over 5.5 million records representing dissertations and theses from thousands of universities around the world.

Extending from they early 1600s to present, PQDT coverage is broadly multidisciplinary and includes foundational research in the life sciences, mathematics, computer science, engineering, social sciences, and humanities. Within dissertations and theses is a wealth of scholarship, yet it is often overlooked because most go unpublished.

Key Features

The ProQuest Dissertations & Theses Citation Index will be a standalone database and included in an All Databases search by default. WoS users also have filter options available in each search so that they can search broadly and then narrow focus on a particular collection, subject category, document type, etc. If a user wants to locate dissertations or theses specifically, they can also search of ProQuest Dissertations & Theses Citation Index only.

Standalone and aggregated search

PQDT is included in ALL Database search and can also be searched as a unique collection.

Track citation activity in Web of Science Core Collection

Dissertations and theses that have been cited by Web of Science Core Collection records will include a citation count and a link to the citing articles.

Claim dissertation or theses to a Web of Science Researcher Profiles

Researchers can manually claim their dissertation or thesis to their Web of Science Researcher Profile and make it part of the public view of their profile.

Links to Full Text of dissertations and theses on ProQuest platform

Institutions that subscribe to PQDT Global on the ProQuest platform will be able to link directly to their entitled full text.

Note: ProQuest Dissertation and Theses Citation Index will be released to customers in two phases. Phase 1: In July 2023, ProQuest Dissertations and Theses Citation Index will go live with metadata records for 5.5+ million dissertations and theses. The records will not include cited reference indexing, which means that functionality such as Related Records and Cited References lists and associated navigation will not display. Phase 2: In late 2023, Linked Cited References lists and Related Records will be released to fully connect dissertations to the Web of Science citation network. If you have any questions regarding PQDT entitlement or functionality, please contact the Web of Science support team .

Steps to Find Full-Text Articles

  • 1. Look for full-text in Duke collections
  • 2. Look for free full-text
  • 3. Place an interlibrary loan request

get it at duke icon

  • Duke Libraries Search Widget If you were unable to get to the full-text through the database you were searching, try using the Duke Libraries Search Widget. Search the full title of the article and try any of the full-text links. If there are none, you can try looking for free full text (Step #2).
  • E-Journals If you were unable to get to the full-text through the database you were searching via the widget, you can search for the specific E-Journal to see if Duke has access. (NOTE: You will need the article citation to look for full-text access.) Search the name of the journal; then, browse to determine if the library subscribes to the specific year. Select the first link that includes the year the article was published. Each publisher website will look different. Find the specific year, volume, and issue that you need and then look for your specific article title.

If you are unable to find full-text articles using the links below, you will need to order it via InterLibrary Loan (Step #3).

  • Google Scholar 1. Make sure your Google Scholar is connected to Duke, as this will give you the Get It @ Duke button. To do this: In Google Scholar > Settings > Library links > Search for Duke > Check all that apply and Save. 2. If you are retrieving too many results, try putting the article title in quotes and / or adding the author last name.
  • Google For difficult to find citations, try regular Google. 1. Use the same techniques of putting the title in quotes and adding author information if needed.

Before making a request for full-text articles through Interlibrary Loan (ILL), please try steps #1 and #2 to search for the full-text. This allows our service to focus on articles that are not available for free nor via our Duke subscriptions. Our Interlibrary Loan service is no charge to Duke borrowers for all article requests. If there are copyright or other fees associated with your article request, we will contact you.

  • Find the article citation in a database:  If you aren't already in a database, go back to PubMed or other database such as CINAHL, Embase, or Web of Science to look up the article. Why? Because our Get it @ Duke button will fill out the ILL form for you with all the article information – this saves you time and ensures greater citation accuracy.

proquest dissertations search

  • Log on with your DHE / NetID username and password:  This will take you to the ILL form. The article information will be filled into the form automatically. Scroll to the bottom, verify accuracy, and click submit.

If you can't find the citation in a database or you don't see a GetIt@Duke button, you can place a request manually through our interlibrary loan service. Follow the steps below.

  • Interlibrary Loan & Document Delivery Request page First, log in with your DHE Active directory username and password (NetID/pw). Next, in the left hand menu, click New Request > Article/Chapter  Finally, fill out the required fields; please take care to ensure accuracy as incorrect citations may cause your order to be delayed or cancelled.
