There is no one rule about using "in" and "on", it depends on the word-combination. Go to this site http://midnightpapers.com if you have doubts about using them in your thesis or essay work.

"On" is commonly used in lieu of "in" by foreiners. E.g. I will meet you guys "on" the nightclub at 10pm.

The use of "on" in lieu of "in" is a common preposition error made by foreigners. E.g. I will meet you guys "on" the nightclub at 10pm.
