How to best disseminate your thesis

Here are some tips on how to disseminate your thesis online. LiU E-press will also distribute your thesis to other services.

When your thesis is published, you will get a DOI link. This link is a permanent link, so even if the thesis is moved to another platform, the link will direct you to the thesis. Please use the DOI link when you write about your thesis online and when you refer to it in other works.

To spread the word about your thesis, write about it on social media such as LinkedIn, X and FaceBook. You can also send the DOI link to your colleagues and collaborators. Further, check your reference list and send the DOI link to the researchers you have cited. By that means, they can read your research and hopefully you'll be cited back.

In order to increase the visibility of licentiate- and PhD theses and to widen the applications of the research, LiU E-Press may distribute thesis metadata to third parties such as Google Books and ProQuest. In the Publishing agreement, you as author may choose if the digital version of the thesis should be distributed in full-text to these publishing platforms or not. In collaboration with ProQuest the thesis will be made available via the database ProQuest Dissertation & Theses Global (PQDT) and Ebook Central. PQDT is available via the Web of Science, and via ProQuest’s full-text database, a database available from universities worldwide.
