Formal requirements for the thesis
The thesis must as a principal rule be in Danish or English and contain an abstract in both languages.
A PhD thesis is an independent work based on an individual PhD study programme and can therefore not be submitted for the assessment of several people jointly. However, there is no objection to the underlying research project having been performed in collaboration with others.
The principal supervisor can approve the inclusion of manuscripts for articles that have already been published. If the thesis is based on articles, there must be a summary providing an account of their mutual connection, showing the progression of and summing up the overall research results. Articles included in the thesis may have been written together with others on the condition that the thesis is accompanied by written declarations from each of the co-authors indicating the author's share of the work. However, the predominant elements must have been written independently.
The co-author declarations must be signed by the co-authors and the PhD student. The PhD committee's form for co-author declaration must be used.
