Register of research in Commonwealth countries (Dec 2006)
The Register of Commonwealth Research is a list of higher degree theses conducted at UK Universities and relating to the Commonwealth of Nations, its member countries, and the former British Empire. The Register has been maintained since 1949 and its retrospective coverage extends back to the 1920s. Commonwealth studies has been defined as study of the Commonwealth of Nations; the former British Empire; and their member countries together with countries formerly under British protection. The exceptions are Britain and the United States. Subject coverage is primarily in the fields of history, politics, sociology, anthropology, economics, geography, literature, language and religion. The subjects of education, medicine, law, science and technology are included on a selective basis. Data for the register are obtained from a variety of sources, including the Aslib Index to theses, Universities' lists of graduate students, correspondence conducted with academic registrars and supervisors, annual reports, departmental websites, and a wide variety of other sources. Information on theses in progress is provided in a separate listing, derived from the register, and updated annually. These files contain information on theses completed, and are correct as of October 2006. These will also be updated annually. The compilation of this register has relied on the co-operation of many persons but it is recognised that it may contain errors, inaccuracies and omissions. Notification of these would be most welcome. You can contact the editor by email at: Commonwealth.Register@sas.ac.uk. The full Register contains (as of December 2006) more than 15,000 records and is continually growing. For ease of use, the register has been divided into the following files: Commonwealth general (including Human Rights and Development issues); Africa and Atlantic Ocean islands; Canada; Caribbean; South Asia; Southeast Asia; Europe; and Oceania. The files are provided in excel and xml format.
