    Las tesis doctorales representan una contribución relevante en el campo en el que se realizan. El objeto principal de una tesis doctoral es demostrar la competencia investigadora y añadir algún valor al conjunto del conocimiento. Este estudio contiene un análisis de la investigación en el campo del marketing en España a través de las tesis doctorales presentadas entre 1980 y 2005. El estudio responde a los interrogantes siguientes: ¿Cuáles son las áreas investigadas? ¿Cuáles son los métodos de obtención de datos? ¿Cuál es la cantidad de investigación cuantitativa y cualitativa que se realiza? ¿Qué técnicas de análisis se emplean?. El estudio concluye con algunas recomendaciones a los departamentos de marketing relacionados con el diseño y contenido de los resúmenes de las tesis doctorales y con la conveniencia de estimular a los estudiantes de doctorado para que utilicen conjuntamente los métodos cuantitativos y cualitativos. / Doctoral dissertations provide a relevant contribution in a field.
