Submitting and Publishing of Dissertations

Quick guide to publishing your dissertation in four steps:

  1. Please read our factsheet including a checklist. There are several options you may choose from. You will find them listed in our factsheet. You will find further information in the Regulations for Doctoral Studies.
  2. Please start a printing- and binding-order (eKladde) for your dissertation. Your dissertation should be printed and binded at kiz. Please log in to the eKladde with your kiz-account. If you don't have a kiz-account, please order your copies directly via the Service-Point Printing Services.
    Medical dissertations are eligible for subsidized printing, provided the student completes the dissertation during his/studies and the order is placed through kiz. This service is financed through tuition fees. You can also order copies for your own use and finally collect them at the Service Point printing services.
  3. Please submit your dissertation to OPARU. If you choose to publish your dissertation digitally (see options under 1.), please use OPARU, University of Ulm's institutional repository.
