Dissertation or Thesis

To create a reference to a dissertation or a thesis, you should include the Author and the title, followed by the type of thesis, University and year of completion in brackets

Format: Author, 'Title' (type of thesis/dissertation, University | year of completion)

Example: Javan Herberg, 'Injunctive Relief for Wrongful Termination of Employment' (DPhil thesis, University of Oxford 1989).

There is no change in format between a footnote reference and a bibliography entry except that in the bibliography, the author's surname should come first followed by the intial(s).

           Example: Herberg J, 'Injunctive Relief for Wrongful Termination of Employment' (DPhil thesis, University of Oxford 1989).
