With the discontinuation of the student and study information register Oodi, the current Laturi system for the submission of electronic theses will also be discontinued and replaced with a completely new Laturi, which will cover the entire thesis process.
Due to the implementation of the new system Laturi will be out of use 20 October – 21 November. Once the system downtime is over, all thesis processes that were not completed in the old system must be restarted in the new Laturi. No information from the old system is transferred into the new Laturi.
More detailed information about the introduction of the new Laturi and instructions for its use will be published later this autumn.
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.
