Higher degree (PhD and Masters) theses completed in Australian universities are an important component of the nation's research output. They distil the results of research conducted under supervision across the full range of disciplines, and although not 'published', they have undergone a rigorous form of peer-review courtesy of the requirement that they are examined by recognised subject experts external to the degree granting university. Many of the country's most esteemed academics and researchers have based their careers on the research undertaken for their higher degrees. Australians as a whole also stand to benefit from the information and knowledge embedded in the corpus of completed theses. Not only do theses comprise a history of an important component of the nation's research activity--in many cases carried out under circumstances and conditions that can never be repeated--but they form an extensive body of research data crucial to attempts to forge a knowledge based economy.
