UvA Dissertations Online
UvA Dissertations Online is a service for the online publication of dissertations of the Universiteit van Amsterdam (UvA). The service aims to achieve increased visibility and proper archiving of UvA dissertations. The use of international standards guarantees worldwide access to the dissertations via the Internet. Popular search engines like Google Scholar and Yahoo can easily find the dissertations in UvA Dissertations Online. To ensure continued availability of the dissertations for the next 100 years, the UvA will archive the dissertations in the e-depot of the Royal Library of the Netherlands. When necessary, the Royal Library will adjust the file format in order to keep the dissertations accessible in the future.
To add a dissertation to UvA Dissertations Online, we need a signed License Agreement of the author in which the University is licensed to add a thesis to UvA Dissertations Online.

PhD students can choose to publish their PhD thesis with Amsterdam University Press (AUP) by Printing On Demand.

Furthermore, anyone worldwide can order printed copies (by printing on demand) of a thesis published by AUP. AUP will, in addition, promote UvA Dissertations Online, just like it does for the inaugural lectures of the Vossius series.
