Print publication

What you need for publishing your thesis in print:

If you send us the table of contents or abstract of your thesis as a PDF/A file via e-mail:, we will make this file/s available via the SLUB catalog. Supplementing bibliographic metadata with tables of contents and abstracts enables an efficient evaluation of the literature, since the catalog-enriching data is already available during the search.

We offer you the possibility to post an electronic version of your thesis on the document and publication server Qucosa (Open Access) in addition or at a later date.

When publishing by a publisher

According to the doctoral regulations, a specified number of copies of your publishing publication must be submitted. Some doctoral regulations require evidence from the publisher of a certain minimum circulation of copies (e.g. publishing contract). Please observe these specifications, if applicable.

How and where can I transfer the documents?

  • Hand out the documents at Service Counter (Lending and Information) of the Central Library during the service hours.
  • Send the documents by mail to: Sächsische Landesbibliothek – Staats- und Universitätsbibliothek Dresden (SLUB), Hochschulschriftenstelle, Zellescher Weg 18, 01069 Dresden

What´s next?

An acknowledgement of receipt is sent to your faculty as soon as we have checked the documents for formal correctness and completeness.
