Article-based doctoral dissertations are published in complete form only if written permission for the reprinting / use of the articles in the university's series has been obtained from the publishers concerned (see also 2.2). Otherwise only the conclusion will be published. For the purposes of the dissertation process, a necessary number of special edition copies including the articles may be taken at the author's responsibility. When considering including unpublished results, please note that the doctoral dissertation is already a publication as such.
