Theses and dissertations are extended scholarly essays submitted for a degree or other academic qualification. Theses and dissertations present original research or in some way pose a theory or question designed to show their expert knowledge of a subject area. In addition, they have usually undertaken an extensive and comprehensive review of the literature that can act as a summary of research on a topic up to the publication date of the thesis or dissertation. These bibliographies, along with your own beginning literature reviews, can help you determine what previous scholarship has adequately covered and where you want to direct your research because you have discovered that the question is inadequately covered or you have a unique perspective you would like to present and support.
