Tourism: Theses & Dissertations

What are thesis and dissertations?

What's a Thesis? Academic research by university academics; lecturers and researchers (e.g. a PhD, MPhil, MRes) and you may reference this level of research in your work

What's a Dissertation? Academic research by university undergraduate or postgraduate students (e.g. BA, MA, MSc). They are not a published source and you would not normally reference a student's dissertation in your university work. Instead you may consider the reference lists they have presented, find some of those sources, read, analyse, interpret and maybe reference them yourself.
