For supervisors

Topical for supervisors

  • Dissertation supervisor's check list can be found in the University of Jyväskylä Graduate School for Doctoral Studies pages.
  • NB. Supervisors-in-charge must be employed by the University of Jyväskylä. If a supervisor-in-charge is not currently employed by the University of Jyväskylä, a new supervisor-in-charge must be assigned. In this case, contact the main representative of the subject.
  • Are you supervising a doctoral student who is preparing a dissertation for a faculty other than the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences or an independent institute providing doctoral education? Or are you co-supervising a dissertation prepared for the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences with someone employed by another faculty or an independent institute providing doctoral education? If so, contact the head of your department when the dissertation is ready for public examination.
  • The Research Services of the Jyväskylä University Library offer the chance to include a free briefing on data acquisition (2 hours) as part of the doctoral seminar. Requests can be sent to the information specialists of the relevant subject (Contact Persons, Information Services).
  • The University of Jyväskylä Ethical Committee: the website contains, amongst other things, ethical guidelines for research and theses and the ethical principles for publication. 
  • University of Jyväskylä Graduate School for Doctoral Studies website contains Guide for supervisors. NB: this information and instructions may be interpreted slightly differently at different faculties. Make sure you read carefully also the instructions of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences.
