All doctoral theses at UAB are published in the repository TDX (Theses and Dissertations Online) that it is a digital cooperative repository of doctoral theses presented at some Spanish universities. The consultation of theses is opened and allows the user to construct searches on the complete text of the files by author, advisor, title, keywords, university anddepartment of publication, year of defense, etc.

This repository, managed by the Consorci de Serveis Universitaris de Catalunya (CSUC), and sponsored by the Generalitat (government) of Catalonia, has the following goals:

  • To publicise, around the world and on the Internet, the results of university research.
  • To offer the authors of theses a tool to increase public access to their work, enhancing its visibility.
  • To stimulate the open scientific production.

According to data from the CSUC, the UAB is the number 1 university in Catalonia in terms of doctoral thesis output. Almost a third of all theses read within the Catalan university system are read at the UAB. 26.3% of the theses deposited in the TDX were from PhD programmes at the UAB. In the context of the whole of Spain, the thesis repository TESEO receives around 10,000 theses per year, of wich over 6% are from PhD programmes at the UAB.
