Distribution and sales of publications


All university publications are freely available online, which supports the open access publication policy. Dissertations will be added to the publication archive Osuva on the day of the public display, "naulaus". This is also the archived version of the publication.


60 copies of the dissertations are ordered, and they are distributed as follows:

  • 6 copies to the Finnish legal deposit libraries
  • 2 copies to Tritonia Academic Library
  • 1 copy for the public display, "naulaus"
  • 20 copies to the author

Depending on printing house, about 30 copies will be left for distribution. The doctoral candidate should discuss all arrangements concerning the dissertation process with the school staff responsible in good time, since each school follows its own procedures.

The author will receive his/her own copies of the print publications as follows:

  • dissertation author 20 copies
  • other publications
    • 1 author/editor 15 copies
    • 2 authors/editors 10 copies each
    • 3 or more authors/editors 5 copies each

The author may order more copies at the price of the printing costs. If you wish to order extra copies, please inform the Publications Secretary before any material is sent to the printing house.
