Before publishing

Guidelines and layout regulations:

Before publishing a dissertation, you should inform yourself about your faculties guidelines. This concerns all requirements particularly with regard to contents which are subject to approval for publication.

With publishing a dissertation, special rules for the layout of title pages must be observed and the number of compulsory copies you have to present to the University Library depends on the chosen publication form. You can find out about these rules from the regulations of your faculty or from the Dean’s office. If you would like to publish a cumulative dissertation, please note that publishing rights must be clarified with the publishers. In case of doubt, please contact the University Library in advance.

Your faculty is responsible for all formal requirements; the University Library merely attests the disposal of the required number of compulsory copies in one of the publication forms.

Plagiarism: How does the UDE deal with it?

On the webpage "Plagiate - Wie geht die UDE damit um?", the UDE offers information to avoid uncertainty. You will find measures and instruments to support and help you with your work.
