Thesica.org, founded in the year 2007, aims at building a comprehensive digital repository of unpublished Ph.D theses that can be used by researchers working in any discipline. Thesica.org was conceptualised as a research platform for scholars all over the world, who would benefit from the network of academicians and their invaluable Ph.D theses.
Since there is always a need for a common repository of Ph.D theses, Thesica.org came into being, with the sole aim of accessibility. We are interested in making maximum use of the technological developments that allow Ph.D theses to be stored and accessed in a digitalized format, thereby ensuring that all documentation is done and retained in its original form. Working in tandem with the academic community to preserve their Ph.D theses they rely upon, Thesica.org is confident of building a strong network that could promote the discovery and use of these resources.
One of the focal areas of Thesica.org is to facilitate inter-disciplinary exploration and study, a need that is fast becoming an important one today. Since we have explored and recorded this requirement, all possible steps have been taken to ensure that Thesica.org will act as a bridge between those who would like to showcase their research as Ph.D theses and those who are keen on making use of this vast repository of knowledge.
With the involvement and active support of the international academic community, Thesica.org aims to create an outstanding repository for preserving more than one million Ph.D theses in a digital format. We will continue to consistently expand access to scholarly works and other materials needed for research and teaching, globally.
We are confident that with the sustained interaction of the global academia, Thesica.org will continue to grow as an easy-to-access workplace for scholars of all disciplines.
