Depositing Your Thesis in the Library

Theses which have been accepted for the award of a Ph.D. degree are held as part of the Physics Library’s collection, and once your examiners have agreed that your thesis meets the requirements of a PhD, you must deposit one hard-bound copy of it in the University Library along with a PDF version of reasonable file size.

Note that before depositing your thesis, you will need to complete a permission slip. The hard-bound copy of the thesis must be identical to the PDF version. Once in the Library, your thesis may be consulted, borrowed and copied in accordance with the regulations. The electronic version has to be uploaded in the ESSE3 system before the final exam, you will receive specific instructions from the PhD office.


Copyright

When depositing your thesis the Library's Cataloguing Team may ask if you have used any third party content. All quotations should be attributed to the source of the quotation with a proper citation as is the standard in Physics. Other third party content such as maps, images, and so on should also be attributed.
When you are a university student you can often make use of third party content without getting the permission of the author or creator of that content. You can do this because copyright laws permit research uses of third party content in some circumstances. However, when you are no longer a student you may not be able to use that third party content outside of the university setting without the permission of the author or creator. Availability of your thesis in the electronic library is a potential example of where permission might be needed. In the permission slips  you are asked this question about third party content so that both you and the university can be protected from allegations of copyright infringement.


Printing and Binding

Candidates should select a type font that produces clear script of adequate size (in any case not smaller than 12pt). The text must be clear and of a size that is easy to read. The thesis should be typeset using Times New Roman (or similar). The Board of Graduate Studies accepts dissertations in A4 format. However, please note that the official printed version of the PhD thesis must be in the B5 JIS (182 mm X 257 mm) format. Please see attached guidelines for details.

Cover and LateX source

While the main body of the thesis is conveniently handled in LaTeX, the outer and inner cover are more easily processed with Word. For your convenience we provide here a standard PhD thesis latex template we adopt in our Graduate School. Templates for the cover will be provided by the Coordinator in due time.
