Registering a doctoral thesis

About the registration procedure
Here is the gathered information about how to register your doctoral thesis. For other questions, please contact your faculty secretary.

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.

Log into LUCRIS (opens in a new window, please use LUCAT for log in)

Read more about registration in LUCRIS at the Staff pages
 

There is also a manual that goes through step by step how to register a thesis and a thesis project.
Read more in the LUCRIS short guide for doctoral and licentiate students (PDF)

  • Abstract in English, and preferably also in Swedish.
  • Information about the public defence of your doctoral thesis, venue and date, etc.

Your log-in information to LUCRIS

In order to register your doctoral thesis in LUCRIS you must have a LUCAT account.
