Identify if there is a strategic gap in the literature.  Dissertations, being longer than journal articles cover topics more comprehensively (than journal articles).  Source of current and up-to-date literature reviews (with extensive bibliographies)  Source of methodological and theoretical approaches to topic of interest.  Provide recommendations for future research.  Source of more extensive data on tests and measurement instruments.  For obscure or esoteric topics, there may be very little existing literature (journals and monographs) but there is likely to be one or several dissertations  They serve as examples or guidance on expected thoroughness and writing styles. A „must have“ for any university with with a focus on PHD students
