The University of Oulu switched to electronic publishing of theses on 1 January 2013.
Students enter their finalized theses into the Laturi system for review and approval. The appointed reviewers and approvers then retrieve from the system the works assigned to them. The system will make an Urkund analysis of the thesis for the reviewer’s use if the student has given permission for this.
After approval the thesis is transferred from Laturi into the university’s central archive and made available to the public on dedicated workstations in the library. Provided that the student has given permission for this, the thesis will also made available in Jultika - the open access repository of the University of Oulu.
From 1 January 2013 only theses submitted to and retrieved from Laturi can be reviewed and approved. The use of Laturi ensures that the reviewers and approvers have access to the same file, which is also archived and saved in the library’s data systems.
