Publishing your dissertation

After your faculty has given you permission to defend the dissertation, you may publish it. The dissertations are usually published both in print and electronically. The University of Eastern Finland and many research centres have publications series, which publish doctoral dissertations. The University of Eastern Finland publication series have sub-series for dissertations.  You have to follow publishing instructions of your own sub-series.

The dissertation must be published at least 10 days before the public examination. It is up to the candidate to make sure that the dissertation is available for viewing at the University Library by the deadline. It is not necessary to have the dissertation printed. If the dissertation is published only electronically, the candidate should nevertheless deliver a paper copy to the University Library.
