dc.description.abstract Purpose Reports on research undertaken into the use made of library and information science (LIS) journals in dissertations written by students undertaking the Master’s course in Information and Library Studies at the University of Wales Aberystwyth. Design Analysis of the citations of 100 (post 2000) dissertations submitted gives an indication of the range of material used in dissertations. In addition, responses to questionnaires from students provide information about how relevant papers are found from LIS journals. Findings Journals with a practical bias were more cited than research-oriented journals. Lists of the most “popular” journal titles are included. Value The research provides a “snapshot” of the use made of LIS journals by Master’s students in their dissertations.
