Model to reference an essay (dissertation)

Is there any "type of source" to reference an essay (dissertation or thesis)?

Here it is the model that I'm searching:

AUTHOR. Title. Year of presentation. Number of pages or volumes. (category and area of ​​concentration) - School Name, University Name, city, year of defense.

The open xml specification puts a thesis or dissertation under the Report category.

Styles like the IEEE styles offered on this site have a special subcategory for thesis/dissertation by using the Type field and specifying 'Thesis' as its value. But their output format is not the same as what you want. You will have to create your own formatting strings for those.
