Doctorates relating to the history of cartography
(awarded from 1995 onwards)

See also Doctorates in progress

This represents an amalgamation of annual listings appearing in the `Personal News' section of the Chronicle in Imago Mundi since vol. 50 (1998). Some of the information was obtained from ProQuest Digital Dissertations [no longer freely accessible], which gives access to UMI's Dissertation Abstracts database. Where a UMI number is given (for some recent entries), entering that into the 'Pub Number' search option gives access to a 24-page preview. Another site which offers the possibility of searching across a number of sites simultaneously is the The Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations (NDLTD).

For UK doctorates, see the Institute of Historical Research's Theses Completed and in Progress (up to 2001) and Index to Theses (from 1970 onwards). Information on doctorates beyond North America and the UK is hard to find.

A note about Russian higher degrees. There are two levels: 'Candidate of Science' (roughly equivalent to a Ph.D) and 'Doctor of Science' (a higher degree, entitling the person to the Full Professor's position). All those listed below were defended in the Institute of the History of Science and Technology's Scientific Council on the History of Geography and Geology.
