Confidential theses

If there is a need for classifying the thesis as confidential, the student should apply for it before the examination process starts.

A theses classified as confidential is sent, as a whole, for plagiarism control and subject examination.
The supervisor should in this stage inform the subject examiners that this is a thesis which should be kept confidential, see e-mail 2.
The thesis will, however, not be published before the time period for keeping it secret has passed (which, according to the Degree Regulations, is a maximum of four years).

NB! The rules for this will change with new regulations for studies, examination and assessment. Check out how it will probably change (see student information on application for confidentiality )

Theses being prepared for commercial publication

If your thesis is being prepared and edited for commercial publication and must therefore not be published in the Åbo Akademi University's publication archive, the student must apply to his/her supervisor or the Dean for a postponement of the time of publication. The supervisor may grant a written exception for a maximum of one year and should inform his/her decision to the Åbo Akademi University Library, abopub@abo.fi.

If you need to postpone the time of publication more than one year, the Dean may grant an exception for a maximum of five (1 + 4) years.

NB! The rules for this will change with new regulations for studies, examination and assessment. Check out how it will probably change (see student information on commercial application )
