Masters Theses in the Pure and Applied Sciences: Accepted by by Wade H. Shafer (auth.), Wade H. Shafer (eds.)

By Wade H. Shafer (auth.), Wade H. Shafer (eds.)

Masters Theses within the natural and technologies was once first conceived, released, and disseminated by way of the guts for info and Numerical Oata research and Synthesis (CINOAS) * at Purdue. collage in 1957, beginning its insurance of theses with the educational yr 1955. starting with quantity thirteen, the printing and dissemination stages of the task have been transferred to college Microfilms/Xerox of Ann Arbor, Michigan, with the concept that such an association will be better to the tutorial and common medical and technical neighborhood. After 5 years of this joint project we had concluded that it used to be within the curiosity of all con­ cerned if the printing and distribution of the volumes have been dealt with through an interna­ tional publishing residence to guarantee more advantageous carrier and broader dissemination. consequently, beginning with quantity 18, Masters Theses within the natural and technologies has been disseminated on a world foundation via Plenum Publishing Cor­ poration of recent York, and within the comparable yr the assurance used to be broadened to incorporate Canadian universities. All again matters is additionally ordered from Plenum. we've got mentioned in quantity 33 (thesis 12 months 1988) a complete of 13,273 theses titles from 23 Canadian and 1 eighty five usa universities. we're definite that this broader base for those titles stated will vastly increase the price of this significant annual reference paintings. whereas quantity 33 experiences theses submitted in 1988, from time to time, yes univer­ sities do record theses submitted in prior years yet no longer said on the time.
