In both cases searches can be refined by clicking on the facets on the left-hand-side of the resultant set of records

However some may be restricted due to commercial in confidence activities, patents pending or culturally sensitive material. Embargoed theses are not available for up to 2 years. In some instances the author has allowed staff and students of UniSA to view the thesis during the 2 year embargo period, so you will be prompted to login after clicking on the link within the record.
