Thesis

The Rector will authorise the printing of the PhD thesis once all the requirements have been satisfied and the Beadle has approved the title page. (Download the title page template, including the university’s logo.)

Whether or not to have the thesis printed is up to the PhD candidate, but at the very least, an electronic copy of the thesis must be submitted for inclusion in the university library.

How to submit an electronic copy of the thesis for inclusion in the university library

One or two versions of electronic manuscript

If any articles are under embargo at the time of submission, an additional version of the thesis must be submitted from which said articles have been removed.

Cover

The title of the thesis and the PhD student’s name must be stated clearly and uniformly.

RePub consent form

Complete and sign the form authorising the inclusion and dissemination of the PhD student’s thesis through RePub. RePub is the website on which EUR academics’ academic publications are presented in an Open Access format.

RePub metadata form

This is where the PhD student provides biographical information on his/her thesis.

Propositions

The PhD student’s statements must be submitted in a separate document.

Submit

Please submit the electronic thesis (+propositions, Repub consent and metadata forms) to pedel@eur.nl via e-mail by pdf or WeTransfer.

Questions

For technical questions, please send an e-mail to repub@remove-this.eur.nl

For copyright matters, please send an e-mail to copyright@remove-this.ubib.eur.nl

Printing

The PhD student is free to pick a printer of his/her own choosing. However, two research institutes, ERIM and the Tinbergen Institute, have a fixed format for printed theses. These institutes use their own regular printer.

Electronic copy of thesis

The electronic copy of a candidate’s thesis must be identical to a hard-copy thesis. In other words, it must be obvious to the reader that the document is a PhD thesis. All versions of the thesis must clearly and uniformly state the title of the thesis and the PhD student’s name. If the thesis is only submitted on a CD-ROM, said CD-ROM must also contain the candidate’s statements and a summary or summaries of the thesis.

Submitting the thesis

The thesis must be submitted to the Beadle, either as an electronic copy (for inclusion in the library) or in hard copy, at least 5 weeks before the scheduled date of the PhD defence, with all the required appendices (see overview above).

Depending on which faculty s/he is affiliated with, the PhD student must present the university with 30 to 34 copies of the thesis.
