Top Definition
An academic dissertation that draws heavily upon the uncredited work of others. So named for the yellow highlighting that tends to be used to illustrate the fact, with a nod to the term 'yellow journalism.'
"William Meehan submitted a yellow dissertation drawing upon Carl Boening. Of course, since Meehan is a ranked academic, he will never be called on it."
