Publication of your dissertation

The last step towards a doctoral degree is the publication of your dissertation. As soon as your dissertation is published in book form or digitally, you will receive your doctoral certificate, which allows you to hold your doctoral degree. If you plan to submit your publication in person, it is a good idea to make an appointment with the Doctoral Office in advance. You can also send all the necessary documents by post.

Publication in book form

Your publication is displayed in two steps:
1. Submitting your publication and submitting documents to the ULB
2. Submitting your publication and other documents to the Doctoral Office

Step 1: ULB

  • Please submit three copies of your publication to the ULB.
  • Please also present the affidavit signed by you and your supervisor for approval for printing.
  • You will receive confirmation of this step from the ULB.

Step 2: Doctoral Office

  • You must submit at least one copy of your publication to the Doctoral Office. You are welcome to submit up to two additional copies if these are to be sent to your supervisor and second reviewer via the Doctoral Office.

    Further documents:
  • Affidavit of approval for printing;
  • Proof that your publication has appeared in a minimum print run of 40 copies (e.g. publisher's contract, publisher's confirmation);
  • If applicable, application for a printing subsidy (also possible at a later date), together with the publisher's invoice and proof of payment of the invoice.
