essays.se: Open access to Swedish university papers
Swedish universities have launched a new website www.essays.se which gives access to several thousands University papers:
Every year tens of thousands of Swedish university students spend many million hours researching and writing their final theses. The end result - all the essays - is a knowledge resource of great weight. However, up until quite recently, it was common that the finished essays where stored away in the darkest corners of the university libraries, where no-one would ever find them.
This problem led way to the Swedish website Uppsatser.se. The website was launched in 2004, with the goal to become a knowledge platform that could bridge the knowledge-gap between university students, schools and companies in Sweden.
Essays.se - the english language version of Uppsatser.se, was launched in november 2007. It is meant for all of people who do not speak Swedish, but still want to take part of the research carried out by Swedish students.
Essays.se and Uppsatser.se co-operate with the LIBRIS-department at the National Library of Sweden.
A search for anthropology gives 23 matches.
Additionally, there is the portal http://www.diva-portal.org/ that lets you find theses, dissertations and other publications in full-text from a number of mainly Swedish universities.
