Good resource for finding advisers and programs


Recommended Posts

I've found a number of potential advisers by using Proquest's dissertation database. You need to go to a university library to access it, but it's wonderful tool for finding the schools and professors that have guided students with similar research interests. In that way it's more informative than looking up the publication history of a professor, because the research they are willing to supervise may be broader in scope than their own particular specialty, and not all professors list dissertation titles of former students. The hits returned when you search for key words in the title or abstract also tell you the name of the adviser, and clicking on the adviser you can see all the dissertations they have supervised. And most dissertations are downloadable, allowing you to identify other committee members as well. Unfortunately the database doesn't include Masters theses which would be useful to search even if you are applying to PhD programs. Does anyone know of a nation-wide database for Masters theses?
