Public notification of the defence must be made well in advance and the doctoral thesis must also be available at the university from this date in a sufficient number of copies to allow a satisfactory examination of the thesis at the public defence. (HF 1993:100, Chapter 6, §41)

The notification is published automatically in the DiVA database, provided you have registered your details well in advance of the public notification date.

 

* The expression "to nail a thesis" is derived from the occasion on which Martin Luther nailed the content of his 95 theses to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg in 1517.
