Booking a time plan

It is important to apply for a time plan in good time. The production of your thesis normally starts about 3–4 weeks before the date of posting, but due to high workloads during certain periods your production time can be longer.

Printing your thesis

In order for production to run as smoothly as possible, it is important that you prepare well and follow the schedule you have been given.

Posting your thesis

Before your defense, you must publish your thesis by so-called nailing. According to the Higher Education Ordinance, doctoral theses must be nailed down at least three weeks before the defense.

Read more about posting.

Digitise your old thesis

A large part of Uppsala University's scientific production before 2003 does not exist in digital form. The Library offers you who have a PhD at Uppsala University help to digitise your doctoral thesis and make it available in DiVA. It will then be searchable in LIBRIS, SwePub and Google Scholar as well.
