Please note in your dissertation publication schedules that the library's dissertation services have a break for dissertation processing 11.7. - 24.7.2021. The enquiries will be answered with a delay. So, if you are planning to have your defence in August, please, contact the services in good time before July.
Wishing you all a great summer!
Start by filling in the The defence of the doctoral dissertation -form.
Then fill in Title page -template and have it checked in your faculty to make sure all affiliations, titles and universities are correct.
Send the checked title pages, the article permissions (for both printed and online dissertation) and the article list by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The library adds the ISBN and ISSN numbers to the title pages and sends the pages back to you (1-3 business days).
After the dissertation has been printed the library saves your doctoral dissertation on the University institutional repository Trepo. You will get instructions on how to publish your dissertation online.
The printing house sends an archivable (PDF/A) version of the dissertation to the library. It is identical with the printed doctoral dissertation. The dissertation is archived in a closed collection that can be read from a library reading terminal without the possibility to print or copy.

For open publishing, the doctoral candidate must request permission from the publishers of the articles attached to the dissertation. Read more on the Permissions to Publish page. Provided that the terms of the original publisher allow it, articles included in the dissertation can be published online. If you do not have permission to publish the article in electronic form as part of the dissertation, it will be omitted from the PDF file before saving it on Trepo.

Deliver the printed dissertation to the Faculty and to the Library no later than 10 days before the public defence.
An online version of the dissertation will be published on the University institutional repository Trepo unless it is not permitted by the external publisher.
