Attached are the latest batch of recent doctoral dissertations harvested from the issues 79-04 A and B of Dissertation Abstracts related to your subject area of Women’s history/women’s health care issues. Now that I have retired I have limited my dissertation harvesting to the last several years’ coverage-still plenty of items that may interest to you. These two issues for some reason had many more titles than normal.
You will find a number of duplicate citations-the ProQuest database is including over 30% duplicate titles, sometimes in multiple months. I try and catch these duplicates but I am sure you will find that I missed quite a few.
I hope that some of the materials I am providing you will be of use to your journal/website/blog/patrons. Feel free to share this material with your colleagues.
I expect to begin harvesting issues 79-05 A and B by the end of next week so I hope to send you this latest dissertation list by the beginning of July, 2020.
