A Content Analysis and Study of the 2000-2009 Electronic Dissertations at UNT

UNT started requiring Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETD) in 2000. There are over 3,000 of these documents from the period between 2000 and 2009. The examination of this collection shows that there has been a constant interest in Knowledge Management (KM) across time and disciplines. Intrigued by this fact, the researchers have started to methodically analyze the materials seeking to identify areas of concern, disciplinary commonalities and differences of the problems being addressed, of the methodologies used in each case, and any other interesting points that may emerge from the study and analysis of the corpus. The references used in each KM ETD will be examined and compared with the other KM ETD in search of patterns. This presentation will report on these findings.
