Writing a student thesis
Writingguide.se was created to support students in their academic writing. Here you will find practical advice on the writing process, how to manage sources and references, and how to publish your thesis.
Writingguide.se will be extended gradually. The following universities and libraries develop this website in collaboration: Blekinge Institute of Technology, Kristianstad University, Linnaeus University and Umeå University. You are welcome to contact us with questions or comments.
Publish in Diva
At BTH we use Diva for institutional repository. BTH students publish information about their student theses in Diva.
When theses are published in Diva they become accessible and searchable in a large number of other search tools, such as Google etc.
