Electronic PhD theses: our “best sellers”
11am, ATT 208
Electronic theses are the most popular downloads from Leicester Research Archive (LRA) and form a huge body of knowledge which is often only available from the LRA. All doctoral theses are now submitted in electronic form and we’ve scanned older printed theses right back to the founding of the University. Apart from embargoed works, most Leicester theses are now available to the world.
LRA Manager Grant Denkinson will share some highlights of our collection and his hopes for the future of open scholarship.
