Submitting and Publishing of Dissertations
Quick guide to publishing your dissertation in four steps:
- 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.
- 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.

Please read the information section on how to publish and legal issues and start publishing by logging in with your kiz account. If you do not have a kiz account you can register for the service.

If you have chosen to publish your dissertation digitally please submit the Abgabeerklärung to the Service-Point Publication Management. You can submit it by telefax, scanned via e-mail or via mail.
