PhD thesis template, submission and printing
Information about the template for the PhD thesis, electronic submission of the PhD thesis for candidate and supervisors and about printing of the PhD thesis.
Template for the thesis and cover page
Please visit UiB's Avhandlingsportalen to find the templates for the thesis and the cover page (separate files): Norwegian and English. Please make sure that the submitted pdf-file of the thesis contains the cover page.
Printing the thesis
Please note the meny on the upper left-hand side in Avhandlingsportalen for starting the print process of the approved thesis. You can choose language of preference on the upper right-hand side.
Please note that The Department of Chemistry does not send printed versions of the to thesis to the evaluation committee. The thesis is sendt electronically from the Faculty to the committee members.
The Department of Chemistry covers NOK 4000 in print costs as long as we arrange for digital PhD defences due to the Corona situation. The final costs will appear online during the ordering of the print job at Skipnes. The candidate orders the printed copies to be sent to his/her home address, not to the Department of Chemistry.
Please be aware that color pages are more expensive to print than black/white pages. If you only have a small dot of color (like one red bullet point), it will mark the page as a color page. We strongly suggest that colors are used only if strictly necessary and that hyperlinks and standardized headings in the word document are in black/white.
You will get the offer to have a test book. It will prolong the print time with 3 days and add costs. In most cases there is no time for the test book. You will have the opportunity to proof read the pdf-version of the file. Please be aware of the quality requirements and recommendations for pictures, graphics and geometrical figures (Avhandlingsportalen).
NB! The official print og the PhD thesis is not ordered before the evaluation committee has given it's statement that the thesis is approved for public defence. The total print time will be approximately 1 week from placing the order to the thesis arrive at the shipping address. If other procedure i required, please contact the departmental PhD coordinator.
