Guidance on the thesis process for trainees

Last Updated on 28/09/2023

The thesis is the largest piece of research work that trainees undertake. It requires considerable planning. This section tells you how to go about planning for your thesis.

Initial proposal form for thesis project

In October of the first year (full time programme) or second year (part time programme) trainees will be asked to submit a form expressing a preference for up to five topic areas from those identified in the thesis ideas booklet for that year, which must include topics offered by at least three different supervisors. The trainee will then be allocated an academic research supervisor, who will in most cases be a member of the programme team. The trainee will then   receive supervision from their supervisor relating to  the Thesis Preparation Assignment (submission in March) and then draft a thesis proposal form with the input of their supervisor(s) for submission in June of the first year of training. The level of support provided is detailed in the consistency framework for research. This proposal will be reviewed and the trainee informed of the outcome.

Ethics committee proposal(s)

For trainees to plan their research time effectively, it is vital that they are ready to start work on their project in good time. For trainees on the full-time programme this is normally considered to be by January of the second year, and for trainees on the part-time programme April of the third year. This means gaining approval from relevant ethics committee(s) well between October and December in the second year. Therefore, it is recommended that trainees make applications to relevant ethics committee(s) as early as possible. This is to allow time to make any alterations ethics committees require, considering the fact that some ethics committees do not meet as frequently over the summer. Supervisors would expect to see at least one complete draft of the ethics application before submission, including copies of measures and draft information sheets and consent forms.

Custodianship of the data

Please note that your thesis supervisor will act as the data custodian throughout the life of the project.

Funding for research

Trainees may wish to consult the policy on funding for research  in the online handbook.

The thesis is comprised of three papers; a literature review, research paper and critical appraisal. For details regarding the supervisory support that trainees can expect for the thesis, please see the ‘ consistency framework ’. Links to both resources can be found at the bottom of the page.

Presentation guidelines

Following the submission of your thesis, you will be required to give a short presentation of your work to fellow trainees, supervisors and members of the wider faculty. This should be thought of as a public presentation and copies of the presentation will be made available afterwards to the public through the course website. You should bear this in mind when choosing what to present and include on your slides.

Electronic submission in the library

Trainees are required to submit an electronic copy of their thesis to the University Library using an online system. More information about this can be found in the guide to depositing your thesis below.

After the Introduction to the Thesis teaching session the trainee will identify three broad topic ideas and email these to the research co-ordinator in October. The trainee will then be allocated an academic research supervisor from the programme team. The trainee then drafts a thesis proposal form with the input of their supervisor(s). This form is to be completed in the first part of the second year. This proposal will be reviewed and the trainee informed of the outcome.

For trainees to plan their research time effectively, it is vital that they are ready to start work on their project by October of the third year. This means gaining approval from relevant ethics committee(s) well before October in the third year. Therefore, it is recommended that trainees make applications to relevant ethics committee(s) as early as possible. This is to allow time to make any alterations ethics committees require, taking into account the fact that some ethics committees do not meet as frequently over the summer. Supervisors would expect to see one complete draft of the ethics application before submission, including copies of measures and draft information sheets and consent forms.

Trainees may wish to consult the policy on funding for research , which can be found in the online handbook.

Literature review

To assist trainees in writing the literature review in good time, supervisors would expect to see the following:

Draft literature review structure. This should be no more than a couple of pages of A4, and should contain the proposed title of the literature review and any subheadings, together with brief outlines of what issues each trainee is planning to discuss under each subheading. This should enable trainees to plan the overall structure of the literature review. Supervisors would expect to see this draft literature review structure in the first part of the s year. At the same time, supervisors also need to see the name of the target journal that is being considered for the literature review and the notes for contributors for that journal.

A first complete draft of the literature review should normally be completed and handed in to supervisors by mid-December of the third year. It should be a complete first draft, written in the format of the target journal, containing a title page, abstract, literature review, any tables/figures and reference list.

A second complete draft of the literature review should normally be completed and handed in to the research team by the end of February of the third year. It should be a complete second draft, written in the format of the target journal, containing a title page, abstract, literature review, any tables/figures and reference list.

Research paper

To assist trainees in writing the research paper in good time, the research team would normally expect to see the following:

By the end of December of the third year, the name of the target journal that is being considered for the research paper and the notes for contributors for that journal. This is to ensure that trainees begin writing the research paper in the appropriate format for their target journal. However, a trainee may find that he or she wishes to change the target journal at some point; this is not a problem as long as the new target journal is acceptable to the research team.

A first draft of the introduction and method of the research paper should normally be completed and handed in to the research team by the end of January of the third year. This should be written in the format of the target journal, and should also contain a title page and a reference list of the references cited in the research paper so far.

A complete draft of the research paper should normally be completed and handed in to the research team by the end of March of the 3rd year. It should be a complete draft, written in the format of the target journal, containing a title page, abstract, introduction, method, results, discussion, tables/figures and reference list.

Critical appraisal section of the thesis

The research team would normally expect to see a first draft of the critical appraisal, completed and handed in to the research team by the end of March in your third year. This should be written in the format of the target journal used for the research paper, and should also contain a title page and a reference list. Given that the critical appraisal contains reflections on the whole thesis process, it is usual to leave this section to the end to write.

The research team would normally expect to see a complete draft of the thesis by the end of April of the third year. This should contain all the constituent parts of the thesis, including a cover page, word counts, the declaration, acknowledgements, contents pages, the literature review, the research paper, the critical appraisal, the ethics committee proposal, and appendices. Please also refer to the consistency framework for details of support.

Examples of previous presentations can be found on the programme website .

It requires considerable planning. This section tells you how to go about planning for your thesis.

After the Introduction to the Thesis teaching session the trainees need to gain agreement, in principle, from a member of the research team to act as the academic supervisor. The trainee then works up a thesis proposal form with the input of their supervisor(s). This form is to be completed by mid-December of the second year. Ideas for the thesis project do not have to be finalised at this point. The academic supervisor will then liaise with another member of the research team to gain feedback on the proposal which will be communicated to trainees. The trainee should then complete and submit the thesis feedback form.

For trainees to plan their research time effectively, it is vital that they are ready to start work on their project by October of the third year. This means gaining approval from relevant ethics committee(s) well before October in the third year. Therefore, it is recommended that trainees make applications to relevant ethics committee(s) for June meetings (of the second year) at the latest. This is to allow time to make any alterations ethics committees require, taking into account the fact that some ethics committees do not meet as frequently over the summer. After consultation with a research team member, staff would normally expect to see one complete draft of the ethics committee application by the end of May of the second year, including copies of measures and draft information sheets and consent forms.

Please note that the pFACT form asks about the custodianship of the data relating to your thesis. The Research Director will act as the data custodian throughout the life of the project.

The thesis proposal form is to be completed by of December of your second year. Ideas for the thesis project do not have to be finalised at this point, but this form gives the thesis review panels (made up of course staff, trainees and service users) the opportunity to evaluate each trainee’s initial thesis research idea, and to allocate to each trainee the most appropriate research team member.

Trainees are required to submit an electronic copy of their thesis to the University Library using an online system. More information about this can be found on the eTheses guide below.

Word template for a Lancaster University thesis

charlesweir/LUThesisTemplate

Folders and files, repository files navigation, lancaster university thesis template.

Download the latest version here: LUThesisTemplate.zip

This is a version of the thesis template created by Kayla Friedman and Malcolm Morgan . See that page for instructions and background; it also has a good PowerPoint presentation by Malcolm Morgan on using Word for thesis writing.

This is a template. Using the Word styles it defines makes it easy to make changes throughout the document. It’s quite possible that your department may have different rules about style, content and formatting than the default here. If so, just change the styles accordingly.

We have made the following changes for Lancaster University use:

  • Changed filenames;
  • Changed font styling (Lancaster makes less use of small caps);
  • Changed fonts, removed extra lines and added alt text for accessibility;
  • Put in Logo according to LU brand guidelines; removed college, etc.;
  • Changed declaration to include papers written; and
  • Added advice on master documents, image placing, and document updating.

Click on the link above to download a ZIP archive containing these files:

  • LAN Thesis Template.dotx - A Template to act as a basis for your thesis. It provides Lancaster University styling, all the appropriate tables of contents and similar, and gives examples of embedded images and tables..
  • README.docx - These instructions in Word format.

There is also a Word plug-in available here that you may find helpful for adding and laying out images and tables.

Details on how to submit your thesis are available from the Lancaster Library site here . The Manual of Academic Regulations and Procedures gives word counts and detailed submission requirements.

Word is not good at handling very large files, so for a practical thesis you may want your thesis to be a master document with sub-documents for each chapter. That works fine with this template. See this excellent HowToGeek site for instructions - the instructions are for an old version of Word, but still work well. Note that Mendeley and the various tables of contents support master documents as well.

You can find examples of successful theses from your department following the instructions on the Lancaster Library site here . Look for ones with Online Access, as you can get these easily.

Starting from scratch

Create a new document from the template. Either double click on the template file in Windows Explorer / Apple Finder, which opens a new file based on the template. Or, in Word, use File - New - New from template and select the template file.

A word document will open containing the basic structure of the PhD Template and instructions. Replace all the highlighted text with your own versions and continue from there.

Migrating an existing document

Simply copy your existing document content into a new document created as above. Here's step by step instructions:

  • Create a new document from the template as above.
  • Find the 'Introduction' heading. Select all the text after and including that, and delete it.
  • Now go to your existing document and copy all the text, if you have existing front matter such as cover pages, tables of contents, do not copy those.
  • Go back to the new document
  • Paste your copied text in place of the text you deleted.
  • Select All (Ctrl + A) and then press F9 to update all the automatically generated content. If prompted select Update Whole Table.
  • Modify the title, abstract, credits and other start material as required. You may need to make additional changes to your document such as formatting appendix titles to the appendix style, fixing headings, checking that styles have been correctly applied and repositioning images.

Upgrading the template

To upgrade the template, download the new version of the template, then use these instructions to update the document to use the new styles.

We're delighted to be able to help you with this one aspect of creating your thesis. Good luck!

Your Thesis

All the information you need about preparing and depositing an electronic version of your thesis should be available on this page. 

To arrange an appointment with the library to discuss completing the Thesis Access Declaration Form , please email [email protected]  

IMPORTANT: The information on this page is ONLY for students whose PhD is being awarded by the University of Cumbria. 

Students submitting to Lancaster University should visit  https://portal.lancaster.ac.uk/ask/study/programme/study-assessment-progression/thesis/deposit-your-thesis/  

Thesis layout and presentation 

University guidelines on the layout and presentation of your thesis are available in the  University of Cumbria Postgraduate Research Assessment Regulations . 

The Graduate School can also advise on the requirements for thesis layout and presentation:  [email protected] .

Please do not sign your name within your thesis, otherwise your signature will be available via the web.

The electronic version of your thesis should be deposited as a single PDF file.  However, it is acceptable to deposit a small number of individual files if you experience difficulties in producing a single file for conversion to PDF.

Before converting to PDF you need to ensure that you have incorporated any elements of the thesis created in programs such as Excel, etc. into the main body of the thesis to create a single PDF file.  However, if there are multimedia elements that you are unable to incorporate into the main body of your thesis it may be possible to upload these as a separate file.

You should save the PDF version of your thesis using the following filename format: yearnamedegree.pdf, eg 2020smithphd.pdf or 2020jonesmphil.pdf

If you need to deposit two files, one complete and one with third party copyright material edited out you should give them different filenames using the following format:

  • edited (public version): yearnamedegree.pdf, eg 2020smithphd.pdf
  • full (not for public view) version: yearnamedegreeinternal.pdf, eg 2020smithphdinternal.pdf

If you need to deposit additional multimedia files that cannot be incorporated into the main PDF file you should use the same file name with the addition of information about the type of media being deposited. eg: 2020smithphd_audio.mpeg

Depositing associated multimedia files 

The main body of your thesis, including associated images, data, tables etc. must be deposited as a PDF document. However, if your thesis has associated multimedia e.g. audio file or video clips, these can be uploaded separately. No guarantee can be given that such files will continue to be accessible in the future. The relevant software for playing such files will not be provided via the institutional repository. Note that you should only upload multimedia files where you own the copyright, or where you have cleared any necessary rights.

Creating an edited version of your thesis

If you have been unable to secure all the necessary third party copyright permissions for your thesis you will not be able to make the full version available online. You will still be required to deposit this copy, and it will be held securely. However, you may wish to make an edited version publicly available. If this is the case you should save an additional copy of your thesis,  remove  the relevant material and insert a place holder at this point in the document, eg "Figure (Text/Chart/Diagram/Image etc) has been removed due to Copyright restrictions".

Remember that you need to deposit both the full and the edited version of your thesis, and that these should be given different filenames (see above).

Quick Guide to MS Word Styles and Headings for UoC Theses

If you are writing a long document such as a thesis, we recommend that you use Styles and Headings within MS Word to format the text – but this is not a mandatory requirement for University of Cumbria PgR Assessment Regulations.  

Styles and Headings are beneficial to your document because…

  • They keep formatting consistent throughout the document and save you time
  • You can create and apply your own styles
  • They offer features that will help your readers and examiners to navigate your work.

The quick guide below will show you how you can use Styles and Headings to create an automatic Navigation Panel and Table of Contents.

Introduction

Copyright law prohibits reusing more than an insubstantial part of third party copyright-protected material unless you have the owner’s permission or your use is permitted by an exception in the legislation (Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988).  If you are unsure whether the third party material you have used is copyright protected see the  Copyright guide for more information

To seek permission for reuse you need to contact the copyright owner.  This may be the author of a work, a publisher, an illustrator etc. In the case of material from books and journals your first course of action should be to contact the publisher. Many publishers give details on their website of how to seek permission and who to contact. Look for information on rights/permissions/copyright clearance. If the publisher does not hold the rights to the work they should forward your enquiry to whoever does.  Once you have established who to contact you can use the template below to form the basis of a letter or e-mail to the rights holder asking permission to include the material in the electronic version of your thesis.

If the rights holder does not reply immediately you may choose to contact them again. However, note that it is not safe to assume a lack of response as permission to go ahead.

What to do if permission is granted

If a copyright holder indicates that permission has been granted you should indicate this at the appropriate point in your thesis, eg 'Permission to reproduce this ... has been granted by...'. You should keep a copy of any letters or e-mails you received from rights holders.

What to do if permission is not granted

If you need to include third party copyright material in your thesis and are unable to obtain permission or are asked to pay to do this you will not be able to make the full version of the thesis publicly available online. You need to select the option on the Thesis Access Declaration form to restrict access to the electronic version of your thesis because of copyright restrictions. However, you are still required to deposit an electronic copy of your thesis which will be held securely.

When you come to deposit your thesis you have two options:

1. Deposit two copies i) The full version with all third party copyright material retained. This version will not be made publicly available; and ii) An edited version excluding the third party copyright material for which you do not have permission. This will be made publicly available.

2. Deposit just the unedited version. This version will not be made publicly available.

Restricting Access to your Thesis

There may be a valid reason why you need to restrict access to your thesis. In most cases this will be for a limited period of time.

Because theses can be requested under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, grounds for embargoing access to a thesis need to relate to one of the exemptions provided for by the Act. The most common reasons why you might need to embargo access are listed below:

  • Your thesis is due for publication, either as a series of articles or as a monograph
  • Your thesis has been commercially sponsored and you may have signed a agreement which does not permit you to make it publicly available
  • Your thesis contains commercially sensitive information, the release of which might prejudice the commercial interests of any person including the author, the University or an external company
  • Your thesis includes material that was obtained under a promise of confidentiality
  • The release of your thesis might endanger the physical or mental health or the safety of an individual

A  detailed list and guidance  on the scope of exemptions is available from the Information Commissioner's Office.

Theses may also be requested under the  Environmental Information Regulations  (EIR). If you think you may need to restrict access to your thesis in relation to environmental information you may need to specify an EIRs exception rather than an Freedom of Information exemption.

You should talk to your supervisor when establishing if there is a need to restrict access to your thesis. They will be able to advise if one of the exemptions permitted under the Act is applicable.

Requests for embargoes should be made on the Thesis Access Declaration form. You must indicate in the space provided in the form which exemption you are claiming, and why you feel an exemption is necessary. It is important that you hand this form in to the  Graduate School  when you are ready to deposit the final version of your thesis so that there is time for your request to be considered. The Director of Institute is required to sign the Thesis Access Declaration form to indicate that they agree with your decision on restricting access to your thesis. The restriction will then be approved by the Graduate School on receipt of the form.

If requests are approved, theses will normally be embargoed for up to a maximum of five years.

At the end of the embargo period, the restrictions on access will be removed automatically. It is your responsibility to contact the Graduate School well in advance if you need to extend the embargo. You will have to make a written case to the Graduate School for the extension.

If you are granted an embargo but decide it is no longer necessary, contact us . We will contact the Director of Institute to confirm that it is appropriate to make the thesis available earlier.

Your Thesis and Creative Commons

What are creative commons licences.

Creative Commons licences are a series of easy-to-use copyright licences designed to encourage the creation of content that can be copied, distributed, and re-used, without infringing the creator’s copyright.  Each licence has three parts: legal code defining the licence terms, a translation of the legal code into easy-to-understand layman’s terms, and a machine-readable version which search engines and other software systems can understand.

Which Creative Commons licence will be applied to my thesis?

The University of Cumbria requires that a CC BY-NC-ND licence be applied when you deposit your thesis in the Institutional Repository called  Insight . This will happen automatically. 

Types of Creative Commons licence

There are six different Creative Commons licences, permitting different types of reuse. 

thesis access declaration form lancaster university

The basic Creative Commons licence is the Creative Commons Attribution licence, or CC-BY licence.  Under a CC-BY licence, users are free to copy, redistribute, and reuse the work for any purpose, including commercial purposes, but must attribute the creator of the work.  The remaining licences are made up of the basic Creative Commons Attribution licence, and one or more of the following elements:

thesis access declaration form lancaster university

Users can only use the work for non-commercial purposes .

thesis access declaration form lancaster university

Users cannot share adaptations or derivatives of the work.

thesis access declaration form lancaster university

Users can share adaptations of the work but must use the same licence terms.

These elements can be combined; for example, the most restrictive Creative Commons licence is CC BY-NC-ND under which users can copy and redistribute the work but cannot alter it in any way, or use it commercially.

thesis access declaration form lancaster university

What if I want to apply a different Creative Commons licence to my work ?

The University requires that a CC BY-NC-ND licence be applied when you deposit your thesis in Insight. This will happen automatically. If you wish to make your thesis available elsewhere under a different licence you are free to do so. You could use the Creative Commons licence chooser to help you pick an appropriate licence.  It will also generate the relevant licence icons and descriptive text for you.

If you want your thesis to be included in the ProQuest Dissertations and Thesis Globa l database then you will need to apply a CC-BY licence.

What do I do if my work has third-party content ?

You must have permission to reuse the third-party content. This permission might be granted by a licence on the third-party content: for example, if the third-party work itself uses a CC BY licence you can reproduce it in your own work as long as you attribute it properly.  

If you have permission to reuse the third-party content, you can apply a Creative Commons licence to your work but you must clearly mark the third party content within your work and indicate the terms of use for these elements.

  • For the overall work: “Except otherwise noted, this thesis is © 2020 Your Name , under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ .”
  • For the third-party content: “The photo X is © 2019 Third-party Name , used under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/3.0/ .”

Thesis Deposit Instructions

Depositing your electronic thesis .

Before depositing the final version of your thesis you should ensure that you do the following:

  • Ensure that you have made best efforts to seek permission to include any third party copyright material in the electronic version of your thesis. If you have been unable to gain all necessary permissions, decide if you want to make an edited version publicly available.
  • Discuss with your supervisor whether or not there is a reason for restricting access to your thesis. If you do wish to restrict access to your thesis you will need the signature of your Director of Institute on the Thesis Access Declaration Form .  
  • Complete the Thesis Access Declaration Form . This should be sent to the Graduate School [email protected]   and to [email protected]   when you are ready to deposit the final version in Insight .

Instructions for electronic theses that are to be made available immediately (no embargoes, no copyright restrictions):

  • You need to send the final PDF electronic version of your thesis as an email attachment to [email protected]  
  • The Insight administrator will deposit your thesis in Insight and apply the relevant metadata to make it discoverable
  • You should have the final version of your thesis as a single PDF file
  • Ensure that your file is named according to the format  yearnamedegree.pdf  (eg 2020smithphd.pdf)
  • Once your thesis has been uploaded to Insight, the Graduate School will be informed that you have complied with University regulations

Instructions for electronic theses where access is to be restricted, either due to an embargo or due to the inclusion of third party copyright material

If you have been granted an embargo or if your thesis contains third party copyright material you do not have permission to include within the electronic version, access to the full text of the thesis will be restricted. In the case of embargoed or restricted theses, the access restriction will be dependent on the length of time for which restriction has been granted (up to a maximum of 5 years).

Embargoed theses

  • The instructions for depositing your thesis in Insight are as above. You will need to include details of the length of restriction, e.g. restricted until 2025, in the appropriate section of the Insight screen.
  • The Insight administrator will verify the embargo details with the Graduate School before restricting access to the thesis. Please make sure you have returned the Thesis Access Declaration Form to the Graduate School containing the required authorisation for the restriction.
  • Once your thesis has been uploaded and validated, the Graduate School will be informed.

Edited versions of theses with third party copyright removed

  • If you have created an edited version of your thesis to remove third party copyright, you may deposit this for public access in addition to the restricted unedited version.  
  • You should give the versions different filenames using the following format.   Edited (public view) version - yearnamedegree.pdf (e.g. 2020smithphd.pdf). Unedited (not for public view) version - yearnamedegreeinternal.pdf (e.g. 2020smithphdinternal.pdf)

What happens after you have deposited your thesis?

The Insight administrator will check the information you have provided and add further details.

If you have chosen to make your thesis available immediately with no embargoes it will be available in Insight shortly after deposit (assuming there are no problems with the file you have deposited - if there are we will contact you). Your theses will then be automatically harvested by the British Library's  EThOS  service.

If you have been granted an embargo, the full text of your thesis will not appear publicly until after this period has elapsed. However, the details about your thesis, e.g. author, title etc. will be made publicly available at the point of deposit. If access to your thesis has been restricted for copyright reasons it will not appear in the repository at all unless you have also provided an edited version.

All the information you need about preparing and depositing an electronic version of your thesis should be available on this site. Below are some of the most commonly asked questions.

What are the advantages to me of making my thesis available electronically?

Your work is much more visible, so it is likely to be better known and more highly cited. It is a flexible format, ideal if your work includes videos or graphics. You can include links to supplementary material too.

Won’t the University of Cumbria be at a disadvantage if it makes its students publish their doctoral theses on the web? Will it affect applications?

On the contrary, most UK universities already require electronic submission of theses and there is no sign of this affecting their student applications. In fact it makes the University's research output more visible to potential applicants.

I'm worried about plagiarism. Won't this make it easier for someone to pass off my work as their own?

In fact the reverse is true! Making your thesis available electronically means that powerful online plagiarism detection services can quickly establish if someone else is using your material. Depositing your e-thesis makes it easier for other researchers to use and cite your work legitimately, using the accepted academic conventions.

I want to publish my thesis as a book; won’t this put a stop to my discussions with a publisher?

You may put an embargo on access to your thesis of up to five years. If this is not sufficient you will need to make a formal written case towards the end of that period to show why the embargo should be extended. However an extension beyond five year would only be made in exceptional circumstances.

My thesis takes the form of a novel I want to publish.

Again, you should apply for a five-year embargo in the first place.

How will people find my thesis?

The thesis can be searched locally from  OneSearch , but it is also harvested by major search engines such as Google and Google Scholar. There are links to it from UK-wide theses services such as  EThOS .

I did my thesis at another university but I would like to deposit a copy here. May I?

Certainly, you may deposit your thesis electronically if you wish. Before you deposit your thesis, please complete the  Thesis Deposit Form and then follow the instructions in this guide.

What will happen if I fail to deposit an electronic version of my thesis?

You will not be permitted to graduate until you have deposited an electronic version of your thesis.

Can I restrict access to my thesis?

For information on the options that may be open to you see the Embargoes section above.

How does the Freedom of Information Act 2000 affect access to my thesis?

For information on this see the Embargoes section above.

What do I do if my thesis contains third party copyright material?

For information on this see the Copyright section above.

What do I do if I want to include works I have already published?

For details of what to do see the Copyright section above.

What format does my thesis need to be in?

See the Format section above.

How do I convert my thesis to PDF format?

What do I do if I cannot produce a single PDF file of my thesis?

If you are experiencing major difficulties in creating a single PDF file it is acceptable to upload a small number of separate PDF files, eg main thesis and appendices.

What happens after I have deposited my electronic thesis in Insight?

A professional essay writing service is an instrument for a student who’s pressed for time or who doesn’t speak English as a first language. However, in 2022 native English-speaking students in the U.S. become to use essay help more and more. Why is that so? Mainly, because academic assignments are too boring and time-consuming. Also, because having an essay writer on your team who’s ready to come to homework rescue saves a great deal of trouble. is one of the best new websites where you get help with your essays from dedicated academic writers for a reasonable price.

Lancaster University Regulations

You can find the full official Lancaster University postgraduate research regulations in the  Manual of Academic Regulations and Procedures .

Lancaster University actively seeks to promote visibility and access to Lancaster research theses. In addition to the requirement to deposit an electronic copy in the open access repository EPrints, the University also makes doctoral level theses available via the British Library's Electronic Theses Online Service (EThOS) and all research theses available via ProQuest® Dissertation & Theses Global.

  • Making research theses openly accessible aims to make your research more discoverable and easier to access. It will disseminate your work to a wider, global audience which will enhance the visibility of your research
  • Potentially, this could enhance your reputation as a researcher, making it easier for other researchers to access your thesis, and therefore increasing the number of scholarly citations to your work
  • It may create opportunities for new collaborations with researchers working in your discipline, and even increase the chance for new funding opportunities or publications

EThOS (Electronic Theses Online Service)

EThOS  allows individuals to discover and access doctoral level theses awarded by UK Higher Education institutions. It is a national open-access database maintained by the British Library aiming to provide electronic access to doctoral theses at no cost to the end-user.

PQDT Global (ProQuest® Dissertation & Theses Global)

Lancaster University deposits its scholarly output of research theses in  ProQuest® Dissertation & Theses Global  in order to promote and preserve the intellectual output of its degree candidates. ProQuest® Dissertation & Theses Global reaches 3,000 universities with over 200 million searches annually and supports discovery of scholarly output through all major subject and discipline indexes (SciFinder, MathSciNet, PsycINFO, ERIC, etc).

ProQuest facilitates a one-off print-on-demand service to individuals. You are eligible for a 10% royalty based upon distribution from this service. You always retain the copyright to your work as ProQuest is a nonexclusive publisher and you retain all your rights as an author. Please contact  ProQuest  to set up your account

You may withdraw your work from PQDT Global at any time. Please contact either  the Library  or  ProQuest  to request the removal of your work.

Depositing your electronic thesis 

Before depositing the final version of your thesis you should ensure that you do the following:

  • Remove personal data from your thesis such as a scanned signature following the declaration statement, any scanned signatures by supervisors, or documents at the front of your thesis that were included for examination purposes 
  • Ensure that you have made the best efforts to seek permission to include any third party copyright material in the electronic version of your thesis. If you have been unable to gain all necessary permissions, decide if you want to make an edited version publicly available.
  • Discuss with your supervisor whether or not there is a reason for restricting access to your thesis. If you do wish to restrict access to your thesis you will need the signature of your Head of Department on the Thesis Access Declaration form.  
  • Complete the Thesis Declaration Form . This should be sent to the Student Registry when you are ready to deposit the final version of your thesis in  PURE .

Send your completed form to the Student Registry by email .

Instructions for electronic theses that are to be made available immediately (no embargoes, no copyright restrictions):

  • You need to deposit the electronic version of your thesis into  PURE
  • Research students have access to Pure and can sign in with their network account
  • You should have the final version of your thesis as a single PDF file
  • Ensure that your file is named according to the format  yearnamedegree.pdf  (eg 2016smithphd.pdf)
  • Use the information in the  PURE user guide  to add an electronic copy of your thesis to PURE
  • Once your thesis has been uploaded to PURE, the Student Registry will be informed that you have complied with University regulations

Instructions for electronic theses where access is to be restricted, either due to an embargo or due to the inclusion of third party copyright material

If you have been granted an embargo or if your thesis contains third party copyright material you do not have permission to include within the electronic version, access to the full text of the thesis will be restricted. In the case of embargoed or restricted theses, the access restriction will be dependent on the length of time for which restriction has been granted (up to a maximum of 5 years).

Embargoed theses

  • The instructions for depositing your thesis in Pure are, as above. You will need to include details of the length of restriction, eg restricted until 2022, in the appropriate section of the PURE screen.
  • The PURE support staff will verify the embargo details with the Student Registry before restricting access to the thesis. Please make sure you have returned the Thesis Access Declaration Form to the Student Registry containing the required authorisation for the restriction.
  • Once your thesis has been uploaded and validated, the Registry will be informed.

Edited versions of theses with third party copyright removed

  • If you have created an edited version of your thesis to remove third party copyright, you may deposit this for public access in addition to the restricted unedited version.  
  • You should give the versions different filenames using the following format.   Edited (public view) version - yearnamedegree.pdf (e.g. 2017smithphd.pdf). Unedited (not for public view) version - yearnamedegreeinternal.pdf (e.g. 2017smithphdinternal.pdf)
  • Once your thesis has been uploaded and validated, the Registry will be informed.

What happens after you have deposited your thesis?

The PURE support team will check the information you have provided and add further details.

If you have chosen to make your thesis available immediately with no embargoes it will be available in the institutional repository shortly after the deposit (assuming there are no problems with the file you have deposited - if there are we will contact you).

If you have been granted an embargo, the full text of your thesis will not appear publicly until after this period has elapsed. However, the details about your thesis, e.g. author, title etc. will be made publicly available at the point of deposit. If access to your thesis has been restricted for copyright reasons it will not appear in the repository at all unless you have also provided an edited version.

There may be a valid reason why you need to restrict access to your thesis. In most cases, this will be for a limited period of time.

Restricting Access to your Thesis

There are a range of reasons why it may be necessary to restrict access to your thesis. Because theses can be requested under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, grounds for embargoing access to a thesis need to relate to one of the exemptions provided for by the Act. The most common reasons why you might need to embargo access are listed below:

  • Your thesis is due for publication, either as a series of articles or as a monograph
  • Your thesis has been commercially sponsored and you may have signed an agreement which does not permit you to make it publicly available
  • Your thesis contains commercially sensitive information, the release of which might prejudice the commercial interests of any person including the author, the University or an external company
  • Your thesis includes material that was obtained under a promise of confidentiality
  • The release of your thesis might endanger the physical or mental health or the safety of an individual

A  detailed list and guidance  on the scope of exemptions are available from the Information Commissioner's Office.

Theses may also be requested under the  Environmental Information Regulations . If you think you may need to restrict access to your thesis in relation to environmental information you may need to specify an EIRs  exception  rather than a Freedom of Infomation exemption.

You should talk to your supervisor when establishing if there is a need to restrict access to your thesis. They will be able to advise if one of the exemptions permitted under the Act is applicable.

Requests for embargoes should be made on the Thesis Access Declaration form. You must indicate in the space provided in the form which exemption you are claiming, and why you feel an exemption is necessary. It is important that you hand this form into the Student Registry when you are ready to deposit the final version of your thesis so that there is time for your request to be considered. Your Head of Department is required to sign the Thesis Access Declaration form to indicate that he/she agrees with your decision on restricting access to your thesis. The restriction will then be approved by the Student Registry on receipt of the form.

If requests are approved, theses will normally be embargoed for up to a maximum of  five years .

At the end of the embargo period, the restrictions on access will be removed automatically. It is your responsibility to contact the Student Registry well in advance if you need to extend the embargo. You will have to make a written case to the Student Registry for the extension.

If you are granted an embargo but decide it is no longer necessary, . We will contact your Head of Department to confirm that it is appropriate to make the thesis available earlier.

Thesis layout and presentation

University guidelines on the layout and presentation of your thesis are available. It is recommended that you consult them in the first instance if you are unsure of how to present your thesis. Consult the  (MARP), Appendix 2.  The Student Registry can also advise on the requirements for thesis layout and presentation.

The electronic version of your thesis should be deposited as a single PDF file.  However, it is acceptable to deposit a small number of individual files if you experience difficulties in producing a single file for conversion to PDF.

Before converting to PDF you need to ensure that you have incorporated any elements of the thesis created in programs such as Excel, etc. into the main body of the thesis to create a single PDF file.  However, if there are multimedia elements that you are unable to incorporate into the main body of your thesis it may be possible to upload these as a separate file.

You should save the PDF version of your thesis using the following filename format: yearnamedegree.pdf, eg 2017smithphd.pdf or 2017jonesmphil.pdf

If you need to deposit two files, one complete and one with third party copyright material edited out you should give them different filenames using the following format:

  • edited (public version): yearnamedegree.pdf, eg 2017smithphd.pdf
  • full (not for public view) version: yearnamedegreeinternal.pdf, eg 2017smithphdinternal.pdf

If you need to deposit additional multimedia files that cannot be incorporated into the main PDF file you should use the same file name with the addition of information about the type of media being deposited. eg: 2017smithphd_audio.mpeg

Depositing associated multimedia files 

The main body of your thesis, including associated images, data, tables etc. must be deposited as a PDF document. However, if your thesis has associated multimedia e.g. audio file or video clips, these can be uploaded separately. No guarantee can be given that such files will continue to be accessible in the future. The relevant software for playing such files will not be provided via the institutional repository. Note that you should only upload multimedia files where you own the copyright, or where you have cleared any necessary rights.

Creating an edited version of your thesis

If you have been unable to secure all the necessary third party copyright permissions for your thesis you will not be able to make the full version available online. You will still be required to deposit this copy, and it will be held securely. However, you may wish to make an edited version publicly available. If this is the case you should save an additional copy of your thesis,  remove  the relevant material and insert a place holder at this point in the document, eg "Figure (Text/Chart/Diagram/image etc) has been removed due to copyright restrictions".

Remember that you need to deposit both the full and the edited version of your thesis, and that these should be given different filenames (see above).

Including Copyright Material

Introduction.

Copyright law prohibits reusing more than an insubstantial part of third party copyright-protected material unless you have the owner’s permission or your use is permitted by an exception in the legislation (Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988).  If you are unsure whether the third party material you have used is copyright protected see the  guide for more information.

Electronic theses

When the thesis is published online you then need to obtain the copyright owner’s permission to use the material unless your use is covered by another exception.  An exception under the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 permits acknowledged fair dealing for the purposes of  criticism ,  review  or  quotation .  You may quote from literary and other works (eg musical, artistic, film) provided the work has been made available to the public, the use is fair, the extent of the quotation is no more than absolutely necessary and the use is acknowledged where possible.  You may also copy and reuse portions of works for criticism and review provided that they have been made available to the public and the use is fair. 

Seeking permission for third party material

These two exceptions are likely to cover the use of third party material in your thesis, but if you are unsure whether your use is legal, it is best to seek permission.  Bear in mind that the copyright owner may already have given permission for your intended reuse, perhaps through the use of a Creative Commons licence or through a copyright notice attached to the work.

To seek permission for reuse you need to contact the copyright owner.  This may be the author of a work, a publisher, an illustrator etc. In the case of material from books and journals, your first course of action should be to contact the publisher. Many publishers give details on their Website of how to seek permission and who to contact. Look for information on rights/permissions/copyright clearance. If the publisher does not hold the rights to the work they should forward your enquiry to whoever does.  Once you have established who to contact you can use the template below to form the basis of a letter or e-mail to the rights holder asking permission to include the material in the electronic version of your thesis.

Permission Letter Templates

If the rights holder does not reply immediately you may choose to contact them again. However, note that it is not safe to assume a lack of response as permission to go ahead.

What to do if permission is granted

If a copyright holder indicates that permission has been granted you should indicate this at the appropriate point in your thesis, eg 'Permission to reproduce this ... has been granted by...'. You should keep a copy of any letters or e-mails you received from rights holders.

What to do if permission is not granted

If you need to include third party copyright material in your thesis and are unable to obtain permission or are asked to pay to do this you will not be able to make the full version of the thesis publicly available online. You need to select the option on the Thesis Access Declaration form to restrict access to the electronic version of your thesis because of copyright restrictions. However, you are still required to deposit an electronic copy of your thesis which will be held securely.

When you come to deposit your thesis you have two options:

1.  Deposit two copies i) The full version with all third party copyright material retained. This version will not be made publicly available; ii) An edited version excluding the third party copyright material for which you do not have permission. This will be made publicly available.

2.  Deposit just the unedited version

Please note that the print version of your thesis will be the full, unedited version. This will be available for consultation in the Library unless you specify that the print should be restricted for any other reason.

All the information you need about preparing and depositing an electronic version of your thesis should be available on this site. Below are some of the most commonly asked questions.
