Submitting your master's thesis

All NTNU master's theses should be submitted electronically for archiving and publishing in DiVA, NTNU's institutional archive, in addition to the production of a limited number of printed copies. The faculties are responsible for ensuring that all master students deliver their thesis in electronic form, and that an electronic copy of the thesis is transferred / delivered to the NTNU University Library. Students who wish to publish their thesis electronicallyvmust sign a separate agreement on this. It is important that the exact same version of the thesis is submitted for the printed and electronic editions. If the student does not want his or her thesis to be available as full-text electronic publication, the thesis will be stored in DiVA and only the author, title, faculty, department and a summary will be visible in any DiVA search. This clause also applies to stipulated and bound theses.

The different faculties have different practices for the submission of master's thesis to DiVA.

The following faculties require the submission of master's theses to DAIM:

·  Faculty of Information Technology, Mathematics and Electrical Engineering (IME)
·  Faculty of Natural Sciences and Technology (NT)
·  Faculty of Engineering Science and Technology (IVT)

The master's thesis will be sent from DAIM to DiVA after it has been approved by the examiners. The student must cross off in DAIM that electronic publication of the master's thesis is permitted in DiVA.

The departments in the following faculties record the thesis directly in DiVA:

·  Faculty of Social Science and Technology (SVT)
·  Faculty of Humanities (HF)

The student submits the electronic version of the master's thesis to his or her department along with a signed agreement that allows the electronic publication of the thesis in DiVA. The department adds the publication agreement to ePhorte and records the master's thesis in DiVA after it has been approved by the examiners. The University Library then publishes the thesis in ePhorte.

The following faculty allows the NTNU University Library to record the thesis in DiVA:

·  Faculty of Architecture and Fine Art

The student submits the electronic version of the master's thesis to his or her department along with a signed agreement that allows the electronic publication of the thesis in DiVA. The department then sends the thesis and the signed agreement to the Library after the thesis has been approved by the examiners. The Library records and publishes the thesis in DiVA.
