E-publish a doctoral thesis in Gupea
Prior to publishing your doctoral thesis, you must register it to be e-published in Gupea.
Instructions for e-publishing your thesis
The day you publish your thesis in the University’s main building in Vasaparken, it must also be published digitally, e-published, in the database Gupea. Before the faculty can e-publish your thesis on the right date you need register your thesis in Gupea.
Do as follows:
- Contact your faculty to get permission to e-publish your thesis. When you have permission to publish, the Library will create an account for you in Gupea and you will receive an email with instructions.
- Log into Gupea and follow the Library's instructions to register your thesis.
- The faculty reviews and approves your registration. You will be notified if something is wrong so that you can make corrections.
- The faculty e-publishes your thesis in Gupea on the same date as you publish your thesis in Vasaparken, making it available to the public.
It is only mandatory to publish the thesis' abstract but all of the faculties encourage full text publishing in Gupea. For doctoral students at Sahlgrenska Academy full text publishing is mandatory.
Please note, in case of a compilation thesis, the pdf file must only contain the thesis frame, not the articles.
