As a rule, publications in the Acta series are not sold. If the author wants that a dissertation containing previously published articles is sold, he/she must also obtain permissions from the publishers of the original articles for the sale of the print version of the dissertation. Obtaining a permission for the sale of the publication can be a time-consuming and complicated process. The request for permission to publish states that a maximum of 30 copies of the dissertation that includes the previously published articles shall be sold (at a price that covers the publishing expenses) and that the articles shall not be included in the online version of the publication; see Template for request for permission to publish for the publication. The permissions obtained from the publishers are submitted together with the other material to the publications editor of the series.
If additional printings of the publication are taken at a later date, it will not be possible to make any revisions to them; no subsequent revisions will be made to the electronic version either. If the doctoral candidate has attached a separate errata page to the print version of the dissertation before the public defence, he/she can submit it to the editorial office who will link it to the dissertation’s home page.
