Objective: To explain prevalent research philosophies, traditions, interest and themes of Thai nursing scholars as reflected in their doctoral dissertations completed during 1976-2000. Design: Descriptive research. Population: 103 doctoral dissertations ofThai scholars completed during 1976-2000. The sample is 83 (79.8%) dissertations. Concept studied: Epistemeological and/or philosophical differences. Methods: Content analysis and descriptive statistics. FIndings: 60.2% graduated from USA, 31.1% from Thailand 7.8 % from Australia and New Zealand. 90.4% graduated during 1993-2000. Nearly half of the dissertations were based upon positivism, 32.5% interpretivism, and 6.0% pragmatism, and neomodernism equally. 39.8% studied acute/chronic illnesses while 32.5% were about well being. 42.5% focused on women groups with little gender sensitivity. 47.0% of the studies contributed to describing the phenomena under study, 43.4% theory/model testing and 9.6%. to specific protocols of nursing practices. Conclusions: Most of the dissertative studies fell under the positivistic tradition while interpretivism was gaining more ground. Pragmatism and neomodernism were applied to a small scale. Implication: There should be a research team comprising researchers from various backgrounds and levels be formed for more in-depth and better-rounded research studies.
