This guide describes how you as a student can register your thesis in DiVA.

Then select the publication type. Student thesis is pre-selected. Choose Continue.
Fill in the information about your thesis according to the instructions in the section "Fields in the DiVA form". Required information is marked with an asterisk (*) in the form. Your department may have decided that other fields are also required.
Upload a PDF of your thesis and check that all the details are correct before submitting your registration.
After the thesis administrator has approved the DiVA entry, the thesis will be visible in DiVA.
There is a question mark icon beside the fields in the form.
If you hover your mouse over the question mark you will see explanatory text about the field.
You can change the language of the DiVA registration form by clicking on the Language button in the upper right corner.
The available languages are Swedish, English and Norwegian.
Enter first and last name. If there are multiple authors, click on Additional authors and fill in the co-author details.
Authors should be listed in the order they appear on the title page of the paper
Click on Select organisation and select the appropriate department. Alternatively, navigate the tree structure using the plus (+) and minus (-) buttons until you find the correct institution. This is not a mandatory field in the form, but you should fill it in as most departments require it. This will forward the submission to the thesis administrator who can publish the thesis.
If you have entered your e-mail address, you will receive a confirmation when the thesis has been registered.
An additional confirmation will be sent to you once the paper has been published. The e-mail address is not visible in DiVA.
If you have collaborated with a company or organisation outside the university, indicate this here.
Check Yes and then enter the name of the company or organisation.

If your thesis has an alternative title in another language, you can enter it in the field for Alternative title.
Select the degree and the number of credits of the thesis.
Indicate your degree programme and/or course. This is not mandatory information in the form but a number of departments require it. This information will help the thesis reach the thesis administrator responsible for publishing it.
Enter the year in which the thesis was approved.
Enter the number of pages. Enter the last numbered page of the essay. Appendices should not be included in the number of pages.
If your thesis is part of a publication series, please select the name of the series from the list. Then enter the series number of your thesis.
If the series is not in the list, fill in the fields under Other series.
Ignore these fields if your department has not provided special instructions.
Specify the subject of the thesis. The suggestion for national subject category feature may be helpful.
Click on Choose subject category and use the search box or navigate through the subject tree using the plus sign (+).
More than one subject category can be selected if desired. Choose the one closest to your topic, it does not have to be an exact match.
If possible, include some keywords to describe your work. This will help other people find your thesis.
Keywords should be separated by commas.
Specify the language of the keywords
The summary at the beginning of your paper should be filled in.
Make sure that it looks tidy and that no redundant characters are included.
This field is not mandatory but it may increase interest in your paper.
If you paste text from Word or another word processing program, unwanted formatting may be included.
To avoid this, click on the Paste as text icon and then paste the abstract.
Specify the language of the abstract.
Fill in the names of the supervisor and examiner.
On the second page of the form, you can upload your thesis in PDF format. This is also where you determine the level of visibility of the PDF file in DiVA.
Sometimes there are agreements with e.g. a corporation that the full text of your thesis should not be displayed in DiVA. In this case, the secrecy box must be checked and the registration number with the decision on secrecy entered. Note that this can only be done by your thesis administrator.
Please note that sensitive personal information about yourself or others, such as a personal identity number, should not be included in a full text that is to be published.
Under Type, select full text and pdf.
Upload the file from your computer by clicking on Browse. If the paper is larger than 1GB, it can be uploaded using a URL.
Finally, please read through and check the box for accepting the publishing conditions. If you have chosen to only archive your file (and not make the thesis itself visible), you are not required to accept the publication conditions.
On the final page of the form you can verify that the information you entered is correct. If you need to change anything, you can either use the Edit information link or click Back to go back through the form and make the changes. Make sure that the PDF file you uploaded can be opened. You can do this at the bottom of the page under the heading Files.
If everything is correct, press Submit.
Before the thesis is published, the information is reviewed by the thesis administrator at your department. For this reason, you cannot see your thesis directly in DiVA after you have registered it.
If you want to change anything in your thesis or have any other questions about it, please contact your thesis administrator.
