Please note that because of the COVID-19 pandemic, mandatory deposit copies of your dissertation have to be submitted by mail to the Exchange Office for Dissertations and Publications.

Marburg University Library complies with the applicable regulations as set out in the Doctoral Degree Regulations (Promotionsordnungen) of the faculties. These generally require publication of the dissertation in one of the following forms:

  • Publication in book form by a publishing house or in a scientific journal
  • Publication as a photoprint
  • Publication as a microfiche
  • Electronic publication (if the dissertation is published electronically, two additional print copies must be submitted to the University Library)

The overview provided below applies. If older doctoral degree regulations are still valid in your case (depends on the date your dissertation was accepted), then the modalities which govern the submission of deposit copies of your dissertation may differ from those listed below.

  • Submission of Deposit Copies of Dissertations to the University Library

    According to an agreement among all faculties, doctoral candidates who have uploaded their dissertations in electronic form (in PDF-A format) will only have to submit two printed copies at the University Library. For further information see Publishing Dissertations.
