Doctoral thesis & Habilitation

You can publish your doctoral thesis or habilitation, which was written in the context of a research activity at Leuphana, via the library either electronically or in printed form. The publication options and workflows are described below.

  • Publish online
  • Publish printed

Publish online

 

Dissertation

You can publish your dissertation electronically via the repository PubData and thus fulfil the publication obligation. All PubData publications are made accessible worldwide free of charge. The publications are not only visible in the PubData catalogue, but can also be searched via other catalogues and search engines (e.g. Google Scholar). In addition, the materials are archived for the long term and receive a DOI (Digital Object Identifier) so that they can be found and cited permanently.
 

Required forms

These forms are to be sent to: publizieren@leuphana.de
 

Workflow

You can start the submission via this link. First log in with your Leuphana account, then select the respective resource type and follow the next steps. You can pause the submission process at any time and continue at a later date. After the final submission of the dissertation, you will receive a confirmation by e-mail.

After submission, the required forms must be sent to publizieren@leuphana.de. Your submitted information and documents will then be reviewed by the library. The dissertation will then be published via PubData.
 

Please note

► According to the new doctoral regulations, the research data on which the dissertation is based have to be archived. You can also archive (and, if desired, publish) this data via PubData. Whether you need to provide printed copies to the library in addition to the electronic version depends on the respective doctoral regulations.

  • According to the new doctoral regulations (from 1 October 2023), no printed copies are to be submitted to the library in addition to the electronic version.
  • According to the old doctoral regulations, 3 printed and hardbound copies must also be submitted to the library. You can submit them either in person or by post. For personal submission, please make an appointment with us in advance - spontaneous submissions are not possible.

If all requirements are met, you will receive a copy of the signed confirmation of receipt from us.

Publish printed

 

Dissertation

You can also submit your dissertation to the library in printed form. The number of copies you have to submit depends on the type of publication you have chosen and is defined in the doctoral regulations. You will then receive a confirmation of receipt from us, which you can use to prove to your department that you have submitted the required copies.

According to the new doctoral regulations (01.10.2023) the following applies: In the case of a monographic publication by a publisher, please deliver 5 deposit copies to the library and provide proof of a minimum print run of 150 copies with a copy of the publisher's contract or, in the case of "Publication on Demand" publications, a delivery guarantee from the publisher for four years via an ISBN number. For all commercially published dissertations, please ensure that the so-called "Hochschulschriftenvermerk" is printed on the back of the title page (e.g.: Leuphana Universität Lüneburg, Dissertation, 20XX). This refers to the year of the defence, not the year of publication.

If there is no publisher's publication, 10 copies in book or photo print for the purpose of dissemination (DIN A4 or DIN A5, permanently bound) must be submitted to the library.

In the case of a cumulative dissertation, 10 complete copies of the framework paper including the articles and manuscripts, printed out and permanently bound, must be submitted to the library.

You can submit your dissertation or habilitation either in person or by post. For personal submission, please make an appointment with us in advance - spontaneous submissions are not possible.
