Editing the thesis and obtaining an ISBN number

As the author, the PhD student is responsible for editing the thesis.

The PhD student is also responsible for obtaining an ISBN number for the thesis through the Lund University Library. The application for an ISBN must be made in good time before printing, via email to Kindly indicate “Thesis: ISBN” in the subject line. Since 2013, two ISBN numbers are issued, one for the printed version and one for the electronic version. Both numbers must be included in both versions.

If the thesis is included in a series, the department assigns a volume number.

Each thesis is to contain a notification sheet (spikningsblad) and a document data sheet (dokumentdatablad). They can be printed out as one sheet with text on both sides.
