In the case of compilation theses, we will only publish the summary. In the case of reports and written articles, you are often required to submit a copy for scanning.

In order for the university library to publish your work in DiVA, you, the author, must sign a legal agreement. After ordering a scan, we will send the relevant contract to you for you to sign. The agreement should then be sent back to the library in the enclosed envelope. You can read the text of the agreement below. Contact if you would like to know more.
