University Graduate School publishes dissertation requirements

The Dissertation Requirements at the University of Jyväskylä define the basic requirements for all doctoral dissertations prepared at the University of Jyväskylä. The requirements are valid for all faculties (and doctoral schools) of the University. Faculty Councils may also give more detailed field-specific instructions, when necessary.

The dissertation requirements are published at the website of the Graduate School for Doctoral Studies both in Finnish and English. They form Appendix 2 of the supervision document for doctoral students and must be sent to the preliminary examiners and opponents of doctoral dissertations at the University of Jyväskylä.

The dissertation requirements were formulated by the steering board of the Graduate School for Doctoral Studies and came into effect as of 1 January 2014. Faculties will decide whether these requirements should be applied to dissertations that were initiated before the date.
