Doctoral dissertational programs have the same status, content-based, functional and legal characteristics as Doctoral dynamic scientific and analytical programs. The main difference between these two types of programs is in fundamental feature of dissertational programs implementation mechanism - attachment of applicant's scientific and analytical activities to his (her) thematic thesis (dissertation) subject to obligatory expert reviewing and publication. 

Therefore dissertational programs are an exception from the general rule of implementation of scientific and analytical project of the IASHE based on consideration of the qualification-related assessment of a large-scale scientific research focused on preparation of the basic dissertational study.

At the same time, considering an obvious presumption of the applicant's special depth of understanding, substantial disclosure and innovative accompaniment of the dissertation research subject, cumulative certification requirements to mastering the doctoral dissertational scientific and analytical program can seem to be little more considerable, than those imposed within the doctoral dynamic scientific and analytical program. To a certain extent it is connected with the need for an objective qualification-based assessment of special applicant's knowledge and skills, as well as the necessary disclosure of a dissertation research subject (as analytical object and a sphere of presentation of author's innovations).
