Publication of the Thesis

After the defense has been passed, the thesis has to be published within one year. The BayNAT director has to approve the printing of the thesis. He may request changes in the manuscript following the reviewer's suggestions. The printing permission form can be received at the dean's office.

The final version has to be in accordance with the contents of the manuscript, for which the printing permission was given (statement in written form). Any changes of the manuscript whether big or small mistakes, formatting modifications as well as figure and picture revisions have to be approved by the reviewers of the thesis.

Theses may be published on the EPUB-Document-Server of UBT. Data format and data carrier have to be agreed upon with the contact persons in the university library.

Theses from PEER should be published on the EPUB-Server under Research Institutions "BayCEER". That way the graduates have the benefit that their publications can be found easier during a topic search and can be  formally cited with the DOI. Coordination and guidelines at the BayCEER Office.

B. Printed Version:

  1. If the graduate wishes to self-publish and print the thesis, she/he needs to hand in 40 copies of the thesis at the Dean's Office, also possible in DIN A5 format.
