Online Publications

In addition to the upload of the digital version of your thesis to the Publication Sever, the doctoral degree regulations/Promotionsordnungen of Potsdam University and the post-doctoral degree regulations/Habilitationsordnung of the Faculty of Science stipulate the submission of deposit copies at the University Library. Specific requirements of the faculties can be found in those regulations.

Please note:

  • The digital version of your thesis needs to be identical with the text version of the submitted print copies that have been approved by the examination board before. For the process of digital archiving, the file needs to be submitted both in the PDF as well as in the original creation format (i.e. MS Word, Office Writer, LaTeX etc.)
