The University of Oulu switched to electronic publishing of theses on 1 January 2013, when the Laturi system for the submission of electronic theses was introduced.
In spring 2021 a new Laturi system will be piloted. In the new system it is possible to administer the whole thesis process, i.e. supervision, plagiarism detection, evaluation and approval, as well as electronic publishing. The system enables communication between supervisors and students, and the setting of intermediate goals, which the supervisor(s) and the student can agree upon between themselves.
⇒ Use of Laturi ensures that the approval processes are consistent and that the reviewers and approvers are using the same file, which is also published and archived.
⇒ All theses are available in electronic form; theses will no longer be printed and their accessibility improves.
⇒ Long-term storage of theses is guaranteed (PDF/A file format)
NB! Use of Laturi requires a University of Oulu O365 account! All messages created by the system are sent to O365 addresses.
