Open Access Week
 
The Open Scholarship Office invites researchers to attend this year's training sessions which will coincide with the global Open Access Week celebrations.
 

Self-submit your thesis or dissertation to the UPeTD repository

Self-submit your research to the Internet. Your work will enjoy increased visibility on the Internet as well as preferential treatment in the workflow after graduation!

The policy for mandatory submission of all theses and dissertations was adopted in 2004, which requires students to submit paper and electronic copies of their theses or dissertations to the postgraduate office of the relevant faculty. Alternatively, students may self-submit their theses or dissertations in the UPeTD repository (http://upetd.up.ac.za). A practical training session will be presented to all postgraduate students, showing them step by step how to self-submit a dissertation or thesis in the UPeTD repository.

Dates: Tuesday, 23 October 2012, 8:30–10:30 OR Thursday, 25 October 9:00–11:00

Venue: Training Room 1, Merensky Library, Hatfield Campus

Requirements: Please bring a final PDF version of your thesis or dissertation so that you can learn how to self-submit it during the workshop.

Attendance is free of charge, but please register with Hendriette Jansen van Vuuren (hendriette.jansenvanvuuren@up.ac.za) for refreshment purposes.

Please supply the following information:

  • name and surname; and
  • department and faculty.

After the submission process your research will undergo an evaluation process, after which it will be made publicly available following your graduation in September. The Open Scholarship Office will give all self-submissions preferential treatment in the UPeTD workflow. These items will be released first.

For more information, please send an e-mail to Elsabe Olivier: elsabe.olivier@up.ac.za
