Jultika FAQ

How soon are approved theses published in Jultika?

Approved theses are submitted weekly to the library's cataloguing department, where the correctness of their bibliographic information is checked. This means that in general approved theses will be in Jultika in approx. one week.

My thesis has been approved a long time ago but I still can't find it in Jultika. What's the problem?

The successful review and approval of an electronic thesis requires that all the reviewers and the approver download the thesis from Laturi before the official approval date. If they fail to do so, or if they download the thesis on the approval date or after that, the similarity of the approved version and the version in Laturi must be verified manually. Since this takes time, the publication of the thesis in Jultika will be delayed. For further information about the publication date of your thesis contact Laturi customer support.

Thesis publicly available after all

I would like to make my thesis publicly available after all. Is it possible to do this afterwards?

Yes, it is possible. All you have to do is visit the library and fill in a form to allow your thesis to be publicly available. Remember to bring a picture ID with you.
