ISBN for a doctoral thesis
This applies to doctoral students at Lund University only.
Before you send your doctoral thesis to print it will need a unique ID. This is called International Standard Book Number (ISBN), and is usually printed on the first page of the doctoral thesis. Depending on which faculty and institution you belong to, you may order an ISBN either from your faculty or from the university library.
The University Library is issuing two ISBNs, one for the printed version and one for the electronic version. Both numbers must be included in both versions.
In some cases, the doctoral thesis is published as part of a publication series and is then provided with the publication series’ ISSN (International Standard Serial Number). ISSNs are not provided by the University Library but administered by the faculties insofar as they are used.
