E-thesis is a digital system for the submission, assessment and archiving of theses and dissertations. It also feeds theses into the University of Helsinki’s open publication repository (Helda).
All master’s theses and equivalent theses completed at the University of Helsinki must be submitted in digital format to E-thesis. Some faculties also require that bachelor’s theses be submitted to E-thesis.
However, master’s theses completed at the Faculty of Science are to be saved in E-thesis only after their approval.
Please find out more about your faculty’s practices (e.g., dates) for the submission of theses and dissertations.
Staff at Student Services receive theses and dissertations submitted to E-thesis, and forward them to the relevant examiners for assessment. Students are notified once their thesis or dissertation has been assessed. The faculty council or a grading committee or the steering group of the relevant degree programme decides on the approval of master’s or equivalent theses that have been assessed. Theses and dissertations saved in the system are automatically sent for analysis to the Urkund system to identify possible plagiarism. Student will get an email and the link to the Urkund report is given to the assessment form in E-thesis. The Urkund report will be reviewed while the thesis or dissertation is being assessed.
Approved theses and dissertations are saved in the E-thesis system and can be read on the Helsinki University Library’s thesis terminals. Abstracts are always public and available online in open repository.
After a thesis or dissertation has been approved, the student can permit its publication in the University of Helsinki’s open publication repository. More information about submission (e.g. abstract form), evaluation and publishing can be found from E-thesis.
