Unpublished Doctoral, Masters thesis. Other Higher Research Degrees.

These reports are to be published in the Wikiversity sense of verifiability: a University recognised by other Universities as capable of awarding research higher degrees must have accepted and passed the thesis or dissertation, and the dissertation must be available for consultation through abstracting / microfilming / electronic archiving / University Library access.
Failed, unsubmitted, or incomplete theses are not Reliable Sources; and should not be used for verification purposes.

Published theses should be cited with {{cite book}}. The degree parameter can be used for specifying the degree.

Usage[edit source]

Horizontal format:

{{Cite thesis |type= |chapter= |title= |url= |author= |last= |first= |year= |publisher= |accessdate= |docket= |oclc= }}

Parameters[edit source]

Syntax[edit source]

Nested parameters rely on their parent parameters:

  • parent
  • OR: parent2—may be used instead of parent
    • child—may be used with parent (and is ignored if parent is not used)
    • OR: child2—may be used instead of child (and is ignored if parent2 is not used)
Where aliases are listed, only one of the parameters may be defined; if multiple aliased parameters are defined, then only one will show.
