Steps to be undertaken by the PhD student
The student must sign a contract allowing UCL to publish an electronic version of the thesis via its institutional directory.
Any copyright questions, especially concerning theses which include published articles, should be clarified with the Research Administration (ADRE). For confidentiality reasons, it is also possible to limit the availability of the entire thesis, by limiting access to the intranet only, by restricting publication for a certain period of time, by limiting access to certain chapters etc.
The login and password requested by Mrs Schicks will be sent to the student by the SCEB. This is needed to enter the thesis information and attach the entire electronic version of the thesis if necessary (one or more PDF files). After the defence, no more changes will be possible, and the thesis will appear according to the chosen options.
The thesis will be referenced in the BICTEL/e collection of the Belgian French Community as well as in the NDLTD international network. To enable this to happen, the PhD student must sign a UCL publication license agreement (see forms) covering the electronic version of the thesis.
This information is required to enter the thesis information and attach the entire electronic version of the thesis if necessary (one or more PDF files). After the defense, the access will be blocked and the thesis will appear according to chosen options.

New arrangements offer candidates wider distribution. Each thesis will receive a collection number and eventually an ISBN number (publication with Presses Universitaires de Louvain - PUL) which will facilitate its identification and accessibility.
The PhD student must
1. Send the name of the author, the title of the thesis, and the date of the public defence to Mrs Fitch (ESPO secretary, 4, Place Montesquieu, email@example.com ) who will then allocate a publication number.
2. Arrange the printing and the cover with CIACO. The full text must be submitted 30 days prior to the defence. http:\\theses.ciaco.com
The cover page is standard for all students. On the back cover page please remember to mention the "Ecole des Sciences Economiques" and, if necessary, the research centre where the research was carried out (IRES, CORE, etc.).
The first page of the thesis (frontispiece) should follow the model available in the forms section.
Do not forget to thank all members of the examining panel (jury).
