Notes

  • Ph. D. thesis/dissertation: Use the terminology used on the thesis itself. Usually the word is “thesis” for theses from New Zealand and all other countries except the US, which uses “dissertation” for Ph. D. theses
  • Location: include after the name of the university, except omit for US theses, e.g. Hood (2008) above
  • Theses in print format
    • Ph. D. theses: follow the title with “Unpublished doctoral thesis/dissertation,” for example Healey (2005) and Hood (2008)
    • Master’s theses: Use “Unpublished master's thesis;” the rest of the reference is like that of a Ph. D. thesis in print format
