Publish through IRC/Library

Publish a PhD thesis

As part of the requirements to receive a PhD degree from Jacobs University, the PhD thesis must be published within one year after the successful defense (cf. the university’s academic policies). One possibility of fulfilling this requirement is to publish the digital version of a PhD thesis on the World Wide Web through the IRC/Library.

In order to submit your PhD thesis to the IRC/Library for publication, you must:

  1. Read the Guide for Publishing a Dissertation
  2. Contact the IRC Publications Officer and declare your intention to publish through the IRC/Library
  3. Upon confirmation by the IRC Publications Officer, upload your PhD thesis

The submission of your PhD thesis for publication is not to be confused with the submission of your PhD thesis for the reviewing process. For the latter, see information relevant to the reviewing process.

  • Please also prepare an abstract that is going to be published with the report on the technical report webpage. Please use simple text or Word for this abstract.

Technical reports must be approved by a standing editorial team comprised of the two following faculty members:
