Holistic Health Studies (HHS) Research Guide

A research guide for HHS students on how to find books, articles, and websites related to this area of study. The guide also provides several useful databases and tutorials.

Where to Find the Holistic Health Studies Research Papers

All of the HHS theses can be located through Sophia, our institutional repository, and LibSearch, the search tool on the homepage of the website. Most of the theses since 2015 are available online in Sophia. The pre-2015 theses (with a few exceptions) are in print in the Library. You can request them through LibSearch.

To find the theses in LibSearch, search for "holistic health studies research papers" (make sure you put the phrase in quotation marks).

Be aware that some of the most recent theses in Sophia are embargoed (withheld from public access for a specific period of time). If you need assistance with locating a thesis, please contact Sue.

Joint Work and Copyright

The thesis that you create together is considered a joint work as defined by U.S. copyright law (a work “prepared by two or more authors with the intention that their contributions be merged into inseparable or interdependent parts of a unitary whole.” 17 U.S.C. § 101). Co-authors own the work's copyright jointly and equally. Each co-owner is independently entitled to use or license the work in whatever way they choose, without getting the consent of the other co-owners. This is the default position of U.S. copyright law. 

We encourage you to review the information linked below, and have discussions about the implications of joint authorship while you are in the process of creating your work. If you want decisions about your work now and in the future to be made as a group, then we recommend that you create a written joint agreement. If you have questions about this issue, please contact Sue.
