If you plan to integrate articles that have already been published or that have been accepted by a journal into your doctoral thesis, please read through the information provided on the website of the Doctoral Administration Office in the paragraph "Cumulative doctoral thesis".

Usually, the conditions described on the page Self-archiving apply, e.g. you will need to integrate articles in the version allowed by the publisher (preprint, postprint) into your thesis and you also need to apply the embargo specified by the publisher.

Some publishers have special conditions for reusing content within doctoral theses that are more generous than what is documented in Sherpa/Romeo. Therefore, it might be worth checking the publisher's website for such regulations or asking the publisher directly.



To read up on publishers' policies regarding cumulative doctoral theses go to this page.
