Instructions for publishing in the series Acta Universitatis Ouluensis: Description of the Acta series

Description of the Acta series

The series Acta Universitatis Ouluensis publishes doctoral dissertations, other original research papers, brief general surveys and comparable material that fulfil the requirements of a scientific publication. Conference proceedings can also be published in this series. The Acta series is divided into eight subseries. Each subseries has its own series editor appointed by the faculty in question.

The publishing process can start only after the doctoral training committee has granted the doctoral candidate permission to publicly defend her dissertation. Other publications  than  doctoral  dissertations  must  include a  referee  report  by  two referees who have been approved by the series editor.

Holiday periods must be taken into account in the schedule. Manuscripts are not accepted in July, which means that if the public defence is scheduled to take place in July-August the manuscript must be finalized by Midsummer. It is also advisable to set aside more time for the editorial process at the turn of the year.

The Acta Universitatis Ouluensis subseries F, Scripta Academica also publishes non-peer-reviewed publications, for example conference publications, reports, reviews and working papers. They can be published in print or electronic form or both. The publications follow the layout of the Acta series.

University of Oulu repository Jultika contains academic dissertations and other publications published in Acta series.
