This morning I did a quick check to see what dissertations on records management topics are now available. I used a 2005 cut off which is completely arbitrary. I also excluded medical records topics.  Again this is just my own perspective.  I do not have library access to dissertation abstracts so my searches in express dissertations were limited to 40 hits.

The number of dissertations from universities at the People's Republic of China is striking. I do not know if these are available in English. I am guessing that they are not since the meta data generally lists the page numbers as zero. But I would be interested in anyone has reviewed any of these publications
