Finding theses

Google Scholar

Google Scholar provides a simple way to broadly search for scholarly literature. It enables you to search across many disciplines and sources: peer-reviewed papers, theses, books, abstracts and articles, from academic publishers, professional societies, preprint repositories, universities and other scholarly organizations.

However, to use QUT Full Text Finder to find journals when searching off-campus, remember to set Google Scholar preferences to recognise QUT Library holdings. Click "Library Links".
