Search for theses in DiVA.



DiVA provides a portal with a search engine and an open archive for students' theses, doctoral theses and research publications produced at Swedish higher education institutions and research institutions. Via DiVA, the registered publications can be made searchable and available to the public. After a thesis has been examined, it is a public document that can be requested by members of the public. The university is obliged to store and arrange the theses so that they can be made available on request. By using the DiVA portal, this can be ensured.

Degree projects carried out at the higher education institution are public documents and the right to take part of public documents is expressed in the Freedom of the Press Act, which is part of our constitution. Here it is stated that the public's right to take part of public documents is the main principle, but that there are exceptions. The exceptions are described in the Public Access to Information and Secrecy Act.
