Submitting Your Thesis
Publishing your Thesis
The National University of Ireland, Galway has recently adopted the policy of providing access to PhD theses in both print and online format. Online publication enables immediate access to a thesis from anywhere in the world and offers the potential for a thesis to be cited more frequently in other research publications. This will give NUI Galway research and researchers greater exposure.
PhD candidates must now therefore submit:
- one hard-bound copy of the thesis to the Student Information Desk
- an online copy to the Library via the ARAN: Access to Research at NUI Galway system.
- For full instructions see E-thesis help on ARAN.
Beware of unsolicited emails from predatory publishers who may offer to publish your thesis. You may find information about such publishers on Jeffry Beall’s webpages. See also further information on academic publishing here.
