Welcome to Unitn-eprints PhD, the institutional archive of the University of Trento where PhD students are requested to self-archive their doctoral thesis.

Self-archiving one's thesis is very easy. It mainly consists of three steps:
  1. filling in an online form with the main bibliographic data about your Doctoral thesis;
  2. depositing the final version of your thesis in electronic format (.pdf), within 15 days from the thesis defence;
  3. accepting, printing, signing and handing the institutional disclaimer to the Doctoral Studies and Licensing Exams Office within 15 days from the thesis defence.

Just follow this simple procedure:

  1. Login with your University username ( included) and password by clicking on Deposit in the User Area on the upper right side of the homepage. If you forgot your password, please contact your Faculty's IT center. For further login problems, please contact the Doctoral Studies and Licensing Exams Office.
  2. follow the instructions given step by step in every page and section of the form, and pay a special attention to the suggestions you can find by clicking on the Help icon (a question mark) you find in every single section of each page;
  3. use the Manual (in Italian) available on the homepage or the FAQ section in case you need further or more general information;
  4. contact the archive administrator in case of need;
  5. read, accept and print the disclaimer you will be requested to open during the self-archiving process (further information about this document can be read in the CRUI Guidelines and Addendum, or can be requested at the Doctoral Studies and Licensing Exams Office. Remember you can directly find a copy of the disclaimer both in English and Italian (in the documentation section) on Unitn-eprints PhD homepage;
IMPORTANT! After self-archiving your thesis and printing the disclaimer, you are requested to hand it to the Doctorate Office in charge of your Doctoral Area (Trento for Humanities, Povo for Science, Rovereto for Cognitive Science).Without this last step, Unitn will not deliver the Diploma concerning the awarding of your Doctoral title.
