The Library maintains the Monash University Thesis Collection, a collection of Doctoral and Masters by Research theses. This collection includes theses in print, microfiche, and electronic format. All theses, regardless of format, can be found in the Library Search.
Honours theses are not generally held in the library. To access Honours theses enquire at the relevant University department.
Once you have found a thesis, how you access a copy will depend on the format (print, microfiche,or electronic) and the access category of that individual thesis (open, restricted or embargo). Access will also differ depending on whether you are a staff member or student of Monash university, a member of the public, or from another institution.
Many theses are available as electronic copies, and are stored in the Bridges research repository for long-term preservation and access. The online collection includes full text theses submitted after 2010 and selected copies of earlier print theses.
Theses in the Research Repository can also be browsed by their faculty group:
|Faculty of Art, Design and Architecture||Faculty of Arts||Faculty of Business and Economics||Faculty of Education|
|Faculty of Engineering||Faculty of Information Technology||Faculty of Law||Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences|
|Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences||Faculty of Science||Monash University Accident Research Centre|
Theses are published in the Research Repository under a range of different access categories.
Open access: Full text of an open access thesis can be directly viewed and downloaded online.
Restricted access: Full text of a restricted thesis is not available for general viewing. The Library may still supply the full text of the thesis, in whole or in part, to persons for research through institutional document delivery, as permitted under Section 51 (2) of the Australia Copyright Act 1968.
Embargo: Print and online copies may be under a 1 or 3 year embargo. The thesis cannot be accessed by anyone during the embargo period.
Partial embargo: Print theses can be partially embargoed, meaning that they may be read at the branch library, but they may not be photocopied. Check at the branch library for more information.
Are you a Monash University research student wanting to know what access category you should add to your thesis? See Writing/Submission for more information.
Monash University Higher Degree by Research students are required to submit a digital copy of their final thesis for examination through the Monash Graduate Research Office portal, see Writing/Submission for more information.
