Who maintains the Armenian Thesis Database?

The database is created and maintained by ARF Armen Karo Student Association, which operates out of offices in Toronto and Montreal, Canada. We also have our own website and one for the Armenian-Canadian Student Convention we organize every year.

How is the database compiled and how often is it updated?

The database works off of papers we’ve come across during our own research; citations submitted to us by scholars and researchers; and similar bibliographies published since the 1970s. We do our best to bring together listings from all over the world and to include papers written in languages other than English. Listings are added as we come across new sources and as individuals submit them through our designated Submit a Paper page. To receive updates when new theses are added, please subscribe to our RSS feed.

I’m interested in a thesis you’ve listed, but there is no link. Where can I find the full text?

In many cases, we are not able to host the full texts of these papers, as copyright is often held by the authors or the universities where they were written. If there is no link posted, we recommend you contact your university library. For additional leads and ideas, please write to us through our Contact Us page.

How can I help or become a member?

You can help keep the database up to date by sending us citations as you come across them. We are especially in need of papers written outside of North America and in languages other than English! If you are interested in becoming a member of our organization and helping with this and other projects, please write to us through our Contact Us page. And if you’ve benefited from this resource, we invite you to make a donation — even $5, $10 or $20 will make a difference.
