Exploring 50 Years of Canadian Theses on Co-operatives
Measuring the Co-operative Difference Research Network
This research project mines the Theses Canada Portal of Library and Archives Canada to offer some basic descriptions of Masters and Doctoral theses written in Canada between 1970-2012. The study results give a profile of where students who write theses about co-ops study, what the theses focus on in terms of, for example, geographic area, industry and type of co-op. Findings indicate that a large number of theses are produced at the University of Sherbrooke and in Quebec overall; that there is a strong international focus; and the case study approach is often used as the methodology of choice.
