The Philosophical Faculty will support its doctoral candidates in the publication costs of a doctoral dissertation, such as the basic layout, printing and proofreading of the manuscript and abstract written in a foreign language. UEF’s contractual service provider must be used when the dissertation is published under the faculty’s publication series and the publication costs are covered by the Philosophical Faculty. The invoices are submitted directly to the faculty, as instructed by the amanuensis.
A doctoral dissertation can be published under the faculty’s publication series or by an external publishing house. The manuscript may also be left unpublished (e.g. self-published or printed unbound copy).
The Faculty supports proofreading costs for a foreign-language dissertation only once, and the language check must be carried out before or after the pre-examination of the dissertation, except for already published articles in the article thesis. The author of the dissertation sends the finished foreign language text (monograph, article thesis summary and/or English abstract) for review as instructed by the amanuensis. The texts to be checked are sent without a bibliography and attachments that do not require language verification. The faculty does not pay for translation costs of texts or proofreading of texts written by the author in their native language. If the author of the dissertation wishes to translate, for example, an abstract from English into Finnish, they must pay for the costs themselves and in this case they can use the translator they want.
A loose title page (i.e. a loose leaf) is placed inside the front cover of the dissertation. The leaf is printed separately. Information concerning the public examination is printed on this title page in addition to the title of the dissertation and the full name of the author.
The author must ensure that the dissertation is published on time and available at the library ten days prior to the public examination.
If the doctoral candidate wishes to publish his/her dissertation under the publication series of the Philosophical Faculty, the candidate must contact the editor-in-chief of the publication series after s/he has been granted permission for a public examination. The editors of the publication series of the Philosophical Faculty are Senior Researcher Noora Heiskanen (School of Educational Sciences and Psychology), Professor Nina Sajaniemi (School of Applied Educational Science and Teacher Education), Professor Matti Kotiranta (Theology) and Associate Professor Marja Sorvari (Humanities).
