Inviting reviewers

The main supervisor is responsible for inviting a reviewer for the thesis. The main supervisor and supervisor can act as thesis reviewers if they are added as reviewers. To invite a reviewer for a thesis, click the ”invite reviewer” button. On the page that opens you can search for and select a person from the teaching staff of the University of Oulu whom you wish to invite. When the user has selected a person and sent the invitation, the invited person receives a notification to her work email. The invited reviewer`s name appears in the thesis information in Laturi. 

Instructions for reviewer

When the supervisor has approved the finalised thesis for evaluation, the reviewer can evaluate it. First the reviewer carefully reads the thesis and its possible Turnitin report. To start the review, select a degree programme specific evaluation form and fill in the form when it opens. Before submitting the evaluation the reviewer should confirm that the information on the form is correct.

Another reviewer can join an earlier evaluation given to the thesis by opening it. Another reviewer can join an evaluation that is in a read-only state. Before joining, the reviewer checks the contents of the  form. When a reviewer has joined an evaluation, her name will appear in the evaluation information. 

The forms will be locked when the thesis is approved or when an approval has been requested for it. After this the forms can no longer be edited/filled in.

Please note that the reviewers suggest a grade for the thesis. The final grade is determined when the thesis is approved.
