Keep Track of Dissertations in Your Field

Dissertation Tracking in ProQuest Dissertations and Theses

ProQuest Dissertations and Theses adds thousands of titles every year. If you don't want to keep having to repeat your search to find new dissertations and theses in your field, you can track them by creating either an email alert or an RSS feed.

Create and complete a search.

From there you can choose whether you would like to create an alert that will be sent to your email or an RSS feed that you can sync up with whatever RSS reader you use. You will be able to customize the search, how often it will send you an alert, and when you would like the alerts to cease.
