Dissertation

A doctoral dissertation is a study based on independent research, which includes new scientific information and is examined at a public defence.

The following can be approved as a dissertation: a uniform study (monograph) or a research compilation formed by scientific publications or article manuscripts approved for publication that cover the same issues as well as a summary prepared based on them.


Article-based dissertation

An article-based doctoral dissertation consists of an introduction, 3–5 published articles or manuscripts approved for publication dealing with the same topic of inquiry, and a summarising report. The introductory chapter should outline the objectives and theoretical and methodological bases of the study and draw the articles together so as to demonstrate their coherence. The summarising report on the articles should present the findings and conclusions of the research and evaluate its social significance and contribution to the field in question.
