In 1972 American universities will confer 33,700 doctorates. An essential feature of the process which leads to the doctorate is the submission and defense of a dissertation. The doctoral dissertation must embody the results of extended research, be an original contribution to knowledge and include material worthy of publication. It is surprising, therefore, that "Dissertation Abstracts," the primary source of abstracts of dissertations is usually overlooked in reports of English-language abstracting and indexing services. This study provides empirical data about the dissertation as an information source. It assesses diffusion and assimilation patterns of dissertation contents. The assessment was based upon an analysis of patterns of (1) diffusion of dissertation contents in the open literature of botany, chemical engineering, chemistry and psychology and (2) assimilation of dissertation contents from the original format as reflected by citations to the dissertation itself. It includes a literature review, a description of research design and methodology, an analysis of collected data noting similarities and dissimilarities, and a presentation of conclusions and implications drawn from the investigation. The chapters are supplemented by data presented in the Appendix. (Author/NH)
