In order to secure maximum exposure of PhD theses filed at Aalborg University and to establish a common procedure for submission, archiving, printing and publication of PhD theses, a submission and publication system – common for the four faculties – has been established. In collaboration with the VBN Team and Aalborg University Press, Aalborg University’s PhD Schools have worked together on this task and are now ready to launch the new model. The new model involves that all future PhD theses must be handed in digitally through filing and uploading of documents in VBN.
Registration in VBN marks the official handing-in of the thesis and initiates the process of printing, archiving and e-publication of the thesis.
In connection with submitting the thesis, PhD students must:
- Format your thesis according to the formatting guidelines.
- Register your thesis in VBN at: www.vbn.aau.dk/admin
- Send an e-mail to Aalborg University Press, regarding choice of front page (see the below paragraph) and confirmation of number of printed copies (if not otherwise specified, the AAU Press will print 6 copies to the reviewing committee, as well as 20 copies prior to the defence).
