Submission of Doctoral thesis

The application for assessment of the doctoral thesis may only be submitted to the faculty after the required coursework has been approved and a proposal with the composition of the Evaluation Committee must be sent (with or without the thesis) to the faculty's Doctoral Committee.

The PhD candidate must hand in the following documents to the faculty’s PhD coordinator:

  • Application for assessment of the dissertation on a stipulated form
  • Seven copies of the dissertation
  • Declaration of co-authorship on a stipulated form. If the thesis contains joint work, declarations must be obtained from the other authors, clarifying co-authorship in the individual works
  • Documentation of authorizations, if any
  • Documentation of approved coursework
  • Report on completed midt-term evaluation (or 50% seminar) and, if applicable, 90% seminar or Final seminar (“avslutningsseminar”)

A completed press release form from PhD candidates must also be handed in later. The PhD coordinator can assist with further information in this process.

Normally, the seven copies submitted are regular prints. These can be in a booklet format or bound in a simple manner (Attende prints this first edition). The final version is sent to the printing press after the dissertation has been approved.

The press release form (available in the “Regulations and Forms” section at the university’s PhD website) must be submitted once the dissertation is approved for public defence. It can be completed together with the supervisor.

After submission, the PhD candidate is only allowed to make corrections of a formal nature, which will have no significance for the content or pagination of the thesis. The errata of changes shall be submitted to the PhD coordinator, at the latest, four weeks before the evaluation committee presents its report.

The faculty may permit a revision of the thesis on the basis of the Evaluation Committee's preliminary comments, in accordance with Regulations § 7-6.
