Cumulative theses

Doctoral theses in cumulative form can be published on OPUS. Additionally in most cases 5 printed issues have to be handed in at the University Library. Before printing the copies please check whether there are special conditions for re-use in a thesis. There might be restrictions and regulations concerning format or quotation.

Especially within a cumulative thesis it is helpful to publish the articles the thesis refers to as a postprint. We would like to ask you to check whether a publication as a postprint on OPUS Würzburg is possible. More information on publishers granting postprint publications can be found in the SHERPA/RoMEO-list. For questions regarding cumulative theses or self-archiving contact us.
