Submission Procedure: Step by step guide
Please describe your dissertation in detail in the online form under Submission of a New Document. Mandatory fields are marked *. On the right hand side of the form you will find help function buttons which provide more details about the fields. You can only correct or delete saved data during the session. Once you quit, corrections can only be made by the editors. By accepting the publication agreement you allow a long term archiving of your document. Furthermore, you agree to the worldwide availibility of your document.
We recommend that you upload your doctoral thesis or habilitation treatise as one pdf file; however, if that is not possible, there is no limit to the number of files you can upload. Please avoid special characters and blanks in file names.
After the successful entry of your data you will receive an automatically generated confirmation message via e-mail. The editorial team Dissertation Online will check the metadata and the pdf file and will then inform you about necessary corrections via e-mail (where applicable). As soon as all the requirements on metadata and the pdf file of your dissertation are met, we will ask you to order the required printed copies made and to submit them in our office (along with the imprimatur).
Upon receiving the printed copies and the imprimatur (personally or by post), the editorial team Dissertation Online checks the printed version and the online version for consistency. Provided that all requirements are fulfilled and all the necessary data are complete, we will issue your acknowledgement of receipt, and your thesis will be made available world wide.
