Library services & resources for Post Graduate Research students: PhD Thesis submission

Thesis submission: University Policy

  • All postgraduate research students are required to deposit an electronic copy of their thesis into PEARL, the university's Open Access research repository. 
  • Older research theses have also been digitized from Library holdings and added to PEARL.

* New guidance on depositing your thesis *

Please see the revised guidance on depositing your thesis:

The submission form will ask you to select an embargo period and give an option to licence your work.  You will need to be aware of any copyright issues (for example, including published versions of your articles, images etc.) and seek permissions or redact material accordingly.  The document gives a permissions seeking template and will advise on how to edit your document.  

For any queries on this process please contact informationspecialists@plymouth.ac.uk
