The requirements and formatting of the doctoral thesis are described in the BayNAT doctoral regulations. The PEER executive board created a guideline for the thesis form, formatting and the own contribution declaration (see below) additional to the BayNAT regulations.
In general, the doctoral thesis has to be an independent scientific achievement of the doctoral candidate with new insights that help to find answers to scientific questions.
A doctoral thesis may be designed in two different formats:
The date of submission of the thesis has to be arranged with the mentoring committee.
Language: German or English, the abstract has to be written in both languages.
Contents: The literature used as well as other resources have to be listed completely; sections that were taken literally or almost literally from literature (citations) have to be marked. The pagination has to be continuous.
Printing: The details to the thesis form, formatting and the requirements for the publication of the thesis are described in the BayNAT regulations as well as in the instructions for completion of a doctoral thesis below. Nevertheless, it is strongly recommended to contact the Dean's office to obtain the information about the current state of the regulations.
Signature: Do not forget to sign the statutory declaration!
