Guidelines for the Doctoral Candidate and Guidelines for the Distribution of Theses

Abstract and Summary

All doctoral theses must have an abstract both in English and Finnish (Abstract / Tiivistelmä). If you cannot write/speak Finnish please contact your supervisor for assistance. In addition, there can be an abstract in any other language. At the end of the dissertation there can be a larger summary in any language (e.g. Summary / Zuzammenfassung / Sammanfattning / Suomenkielinen lyhennelmä). This kind of summary is not compulsory.

How to get permissions for articles from publishers

You must have a permission to use your original artices as a part of your article-based doctoral thesis. RightsLink is used by most publishers and is a quick and easy way for requesting permissions.
