Registering a doctoral thesis
In order to register your doctoral thesis, you will need a LUCAT username and password. Registrations are made in the research information system, LUCRIS. Electronic registration involves making the public defence of your doctoral thesis known and should, therefore, be carried out in good time before the event. Contact the secretary at your faculty for information regarding the registration deadline.
Publishing a doctoral thesis in full text
If you or the University is the publisher of your doctoral thesis, the full text (usually a pdf file) can be made publicly available in LUCRIS, something that we highly recommend, in line with the University’s publishing policy (in Swedish).
ISBN for a doctoral thesis
Before your doctoral thesis is printed, it must have a unique ID. This is called an International Standard Book Number (ISBN) and is usually printed on the flyleaf of the doctoral thesis. Since electronically published books have a separate number, the doctoral thesis will be given two ISBNs, one for the printed version and one for the digital version. Both ISBNs should appear on both versions.
Distributing a doctoral thesis
You are required to submit your printed thesis to the University Library. Leave your theses at the Information Desk on the entrance floor. We will give you receipt for receiving this.
You can also post your thesis to us, if you prefer this. Remember to put your name and address on the envelope or package, så we can send you a receipt.
