Hello SOCNET ---
We would like to take this opportunity to announce:
"Bibliography of Select Dissertation Abstracts, 1950 - 2001"
Often professional bibliographies overlook Dissertation Abstracts.
Recall that these
dissertations are often written at the peak of an individuals
intellectual development. Some
of these authors remain "one-shot" wonders and others only publish in
foreign journals. In
both cases, the professional contributions of these people are lost or
collection tries to make some of these excellent works available.
Our own research interests lie in three specific areas and it is some of
abstracts that we are presenting here. ( http://www.sssgrp.com , click
on Dissertation Abstracts)
Modeling & Simulation of Social Systems
Social Network, Emergence & Evolution
We take full responsibility for any errors and/or omissions. Selection

can locate these!
A minimum amout of editing was done to expedite the result of this
For the earlier works, prior to 1979, dissertation abstracts were not
available on the
Internet. For these, we listed the reference to the abstracts available
in the bound volumes
at your research library. If your favorite dissertation is not
represented in this collection, we
would like to hear from you; mailto:[log in to unmask]: .
We will review your submission and if
it is within our interest we will add it.
For copies of complete dissertations, contact UMI ProQuest
There is a cost involved.
Hope this helps your own research.
