Doctoral candidates are required to make their theses appropriately available to the academic community through publication and distribution (Kultusministerkonferenz decision of 30 October 1997: "Grundsätze für die Veröffentlichung von Dissertationen").
In every individual case, specifics related to publication apply, as laid out in the respective department's doctoral graduation regulations in place at the time of admission to the doctoral program. Deviations from such regulations, if at all admissable, require a department-board (Fachbereichsrat) decision (cf. legal foundation).
