18 Bibliography

18.4 Theses and dissertations

Citations of theses and dissertations should include the degree for which they were submitted, and the full name of the institution as indicated on the title page. Titles should be printed in roman within single quotation marks. The terms dissertation and thesis, as well as DPhil and PhD, are not interchangeable; use whichever appears on the title page of the work itself. The date should be that of submission; it should preferably not be placed within parentheses:

Hill, Daniel, ‘Divinity and Maximal Greatness’, PhD thesis, King’s College, London, 2001.

Universities and institutions must always be cited using their full, official form, so as to avoid potential confusion between similar-sounding names (for example Washington University and University of Washington).
