Doctoral Dissertations and Licentiate Theses
Linnaeus University Dissertations & Lnu Licentiate
Dissertations and theses presented at Linnaeus University are normally published in the respective series. The author supplies Lnu Press with the body matter, ready for print. See the respective checklist for printing below for practical information.
Dissertations and theses in the series follow a predefined graphical form, both cover and body matter. Lnu Press is responsible for the templates and their support.
Printing is paid by the institution. Approximate price for a dissertation (200 pages, 100 copies) is about 8000 SEK, excluding VAT and shipping. For theses it is 60 öre per page (color pages 2,15 SEK each) and 25 SEK per cover.
The department determines the size of the edition. 20 copies of the dissertations and five copies of the theses are taken care of and distributed by Lnu Press.
Dissertations and theses are to be registered in DiVA. This is done by the author. For more information about registering in DiVA, see DiVA - Publish and Register.

Lnu Press also produces single volumes that do not belong to any series. For example
- Festschrifts and Commemoratives
- Monographs, Peer Reviewed through Kriterium
