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 below.)

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

  • If any articles are under embargo at the time of submission, an additional version of the thesis must be uploaden in Hora Finita (tab Libraby) from which said articles have been removed.

  • The title of the thesis and the PhD student’s name must be stated clearly and uniformly, this has to be uploaded in Hora Finita (tab Libraby).

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. 

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.
