Dissertation Abstracts Issues 78-08 A and B

View the latest batch of recent doctoral dissertations harvested from the issues 78-08 A and B of Dissertation Abstracts that pertain to the broad scope of history of science and the medicine and health care by clicking here.

Because I am now working very part time you will need to look at the dissertations listings for the past two months-this will be an ongoing trend with my work as my energy has lapsed since I passed 70!  I do apologize for this inconvenience.

ProQuest has altered how they put out their individual issues.  No longer do they correlate to one month, so the dating is more random.  Thus titles will range from 2018-yes they have some 2018 dates-back into the early 1900’s.

A friendly warning-you will find duplicates in this list, not only for this month but from past months.  ProQuest has been adding over 30% duplicate titles to its list of dissertations.  While I try and catch these duplicate titles I know I am missing some so be aware of this problem.
