Registering a doctoral thesis
Register your doctoral thesis in LUCRIS
As a doctoral student at LU, you use LUCRIS to register your degree project and your thesis when it is completed. This makes your thesis visible and increases its dissemination within and outside LU. The registration makes it visible in the LU Research Portal, and also in the webpage for upcoming public defenses of doctoral theses.
There is also a manual that goes through step by step how to register a thesis and a thesis project.
