Publication Instructions for Doctoral Dissertations

The Philosophical Faculty will pay a publication grant to cover the publication costs of a doctoral dissertation. The grant can be used for the layout, printing and proofreading of the dissertation and abstract written in a foreign language. UEF's contractual service provider must be used when the dissertation is published under the faculty's publication series and the publication costs are covered by the Philosophical Faculty. The contractual service provider is Semantix. The grant will not be paid to the author of the doctoral dissertation. Instead, the invoices are delivered directly to the faculty, as instructed by the amanuensis.

A doctoral dissertation can be published under the faculty's publication series or by an external publishing house. The work may also be left unpublished (e.g. self-published or printed unbound copy). Without exception, the faculty must be provided with 31–60 printed versions of the doctoral dissertation no later than two weeks prior to the public examination. More detailed information on the faculty's distribution process can be obtained from the amanuensis.

The doctoral dissertation must be publicly available at the university library ten days prior to the public examination.

The author of the dissertation must ensure that the work is published on time and made publicly available at the library ten days prior to the public examination.
