INFO 13 - Submission of the doctoral thesis

General information

The publication of the doctoral thesis is an essential part of the doctoral procedure (see Doctoral Procedure of the TU Ilmenau). This includes the free submission of the doctoral thesis to the Ilmenau University Library (UB). There are different possibilities of publication, which are presented in the following.

We recommend electronic publication, as it is better perceived via the Internet and therefore easier to use than some distributed printed copies. Please contact us before writing the final version of your doctoral thesis - this will save you and us unnecessary work.

Publication procedure

In order to ensure a speedy processing of the publication, please proceed as follows:

  • The first step is always to register your dissertation (PhD thesis) via the online form.
  • Please note that this registration can only be done online. The file attachments required in the registration (German and English summary) must be formatted as pure TXT files. The size of these files is limited to a maximum of 2400 characters each.

When registering, you must decide in which form you want to publish:

An ideal combination of both possibilities, electronic and printed publication, is offered to you e.g. by Universitätsverlag Ilmenau.

Electronic publication

By submitting your work in electronic form, you can benefit from the advantages of an electronic publication, including faster distribution, easier access, integration into Internet search engines, and citation capability through permanent identifiers (URN, Uniform Resource Name).

After registering your dissertation via the online form we will send you a URN for your electronic dissertation, which enables your electronic document to be identified persistently, regardless of location. Please position this URN before creating the presentation format (PDF/A or PS) and before printing your dissertation on the title page at the bottom on the left.

Example for positioning: URN-Positionierung

This is important because the dissertation in electronic form must match the printed copies in all parts.

Further to be submitted (procedures and dates are to be coordinated with the UB):

Your dissertatopm will be published by us in the Digitale Bibliothek Thüringen (dbt). You will be notified by email of the link for direct access to your doctoral thesis.

Printed publication

The copies to be delivered must be printed on age-resistant wood-free and acid-free paper and require a hard cover (no ring binding).

The following are to be submitted:

  • 6 copies, if a commercial publisher (publishing house) is responsible for distribution via the book trade and bindingly guarantees a minimum circulation of 150 copies or availability for a period of at least two years,

    or

  • 10 copies in book or photo printing.
