As you refine your topic it is useful to consult theses and dissertations because they could contain the latest research related to your topic. They also may give you some ideas on approaches to your topic. If you are doing advanced research that needs to be original, you must consult theses and dissertations to confirm that your research is original and will offer something new or a refinement of the work that has already been done on your topic.
