Theses written by others can be a valuable source of inspiration for the structure of your thesis, or for gaining an overview of your field or topic. If you find a thesis similar to the one you are thinking of writing, take a look on the list of resources and literature review chapter. However, be careful, because not all published theses are credible and some may contain errors, so always check the evaluation by the thesis review committee (if available).
