LJMU E-Theses service
An electronic archive of research degree theses
The LJMU E-Theses Collection is an electronic archive of research degree theses that have been accepted by Liverpool John Moores University. The collection makes the valuable and original research being done within the University accessible to all.
The collection holds the full text of all Liverpool John Moores University PhD and MPhil theses submitted from September 2013 onwards. Whilst the majority of theses in the collection are available on an open access basis, some are under embargo.
