At the University Library of Southern Denmark, we are working on a solution for permanent safekeeping of PhD theses submitted at SDU.
At the moment we are looking into the possibilities for adjusting the submission module in PURE so that students can submit their PhD theses for an originality check. When the final version of a thesis has been uploaded, it will be made publicly available after the PhD defence.
Our intention is to create a workflow where we can help the students with both digital and printed versions of their theses. When this workflow has been established, we will be able to help the students with copyright, design and allocation of ISBN and ISSN.
