By Prof. Abdul Karim Bangura,USA.

In 1994, I wrote an essay titled “Doctoral Dissertations and Master’s Theses on Sierra Leone: A Content Analysis” that was published in The Sierra Leone Review: A Journal of Policy Studies and Culture (vol. iii, no., 1, 1994:42-28). Since then, I have been updating the bibliography on these works and occasionally sharing it with readers. The following is an updated version of the bibliography. If you know of any dissertations or theses that are not on this list, please send me the information to my The African Institution Thanks in advance for your good help.
