Publishing from your thesis

Some publishers may object to the thesis being so publicly available before they publish any articles or books based on research in the thesis while other publishers, for example Elsevier, have stated that they do not consider an e-thesis to be a prior-publication. However on balance we recommend that if you have not yet finished publishing from your thesis, the e-thesis is embargoed.

It is possible to add bibliographic information about the articles and books published from a thesis to the ePrints record. If you later want to add extra information to your thesis ePrints entry you should contact the ePrints team, email: eprints@soton.ac.uk

Finding Theses

You can search ePrints Soton, our institutional repository to find theses from the University of Southampton. Use the Advanced Search option, select Thesis as the item type, and select your School or Group or search by keyword.
