"The candidate must submit to the Faculty printed versions of his or her dissertation (mandatory copies), the quantity of which is to be determined by resolution of the Faculty. The candidate shall not be reimbursed. These must be submitted to the Faculty within a year after the oral examination has been successfully passed."
You will receive written confirmation of the examination shortly after the successful disputation, which will also include a deadline for publication. After the disputation as the last examination performance, you do not have to be enrolled in the study programme for the phase of publication. The doctoral title (this also applies to the title "Dr. des.", which is not permitted by the doctoral examination regulations of the Faculty of Social Sciences) may only be worn after the publication of the dissertation, i.e. after the completion of the doctorate by the delivery of the doctoral certificate and diploma.
When publishing the dissertation, the doctoral candidate should take into account the recommendations of the reviewers regarding changes in content.
If the title of the publication differs from the original title of the dissertation, please contact the Office of the Dean of Studies in advance. This also applies to the publication of a cumulative dissertation, for which separate regulations apply.
According to the examination regulations, the mandatory copies of the dissertation must each contain a short curriculum vitae at the end, which only includes the compulsory information specified in the respective examination regulations (see § 24 para. 7).
Together with the mandatory copies of the dissertation, the doctoral candidate must submit two summaries including brief outlines, each usually one DIN A4 page in length, in German and English (as a pdf file). These will be published by the faculty.
On the revision slip, the first supervisor confirms that the final print version of the dissertation and the summaries in German and English meet the formal requirements for publication. Please submit the original revision certificate.
