Institutional repository and student thesis


In the institutional repository DiVA we collect publications from the University of Boras. Researchers have to register their work, but as a student you have to accept the publishing agreement for the thesis to be searchable and available.

If you do not accept the agreement the thesis will not be searchable in DiVA. This can become a problem if future employers want to look at the thesis.

If you approve of the agreement your thesis will be searchable in the following fields: Name, title, abstract, keywords and subject area. Be sure to carefully choose your keywords and write the abstract, do these describe your work well enough for the thesis to be found in DiVA?

Do you have questions about the metadata fields in DiVA or do you want hints on how to choose keywords or structure your abstract, then you should make a visit to the library Search lab.
