Degree theses and copyright

Possible copyright issues referring to the electronic distribution of a degree thesis must be dealt with by the author themselves. If a thesis was completed in cooperation with a commercial enterprise, it is important to clarify whether the results of the degree thesis may in fact be published. If the author wishes to publish their thesis using another publisher, they must confirm whether the thesis can also be published by ilmedia in the Digitale Bibliothek Thüringen (dbt) (dbt), as well as in journals, conference volumes and books.
After distributing the thesis via ilmedia and the dbt, the author still reserves the right to use their degree thesis – in whole or in part – in later publications.

Detailed information on copyright is given under the menu item “author information/copyright”.
