Uppsala University has a long tradition of distributing and providing access to the university's publications. Doctoral theses, articles, student papers and other types of publications can be searched for and downloaded in the university´s open archive, DiVA.
The library provides support in questions concerning Open Access and publishing. Below you will find more information about DiVA, Open Access and the series Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis.
At Uppsala University you can register your publications and make them freely available by publishing open access in DiVA. DiVA (Digitala Vetenskapliga Arkivet) is Uppsala University's system for digital publishing and for registering publications produced by researchers, teachers and students.
Open access publishing can be accomplished in several ways in order to make your research results freely available and thus enhance the effect of your publications.
You can either publish in a journal or other kind of publication without open access and deposit a copy in an open archive like DiVA (self-archiving), or publish in a journal with open access.
You can publish your student paper or degree project in DiVA in full text. Your paper will become visible in many services like Uppsök [in Swedish only], Essays.se and finding tools such as Google. This will significantly increase the dissemination and visibility of your paper.
Many of the universitiy’s publications are published within the series Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis and its many subject series. When publishing within the Acta-series you are under certain circumstances permitted to apply for printing grants.
You can buy printed theses from Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis and other publications from the Uppsala University webshop.
