The doctoral thesis consists of an original research work created by the PhD candidate in a field of knowledge included in the PhD programme. The thesis can be written and defended in Spanish, Basque or English.

Doctoral thesis

Several published works by the PhD candidate may be presented for evaluation as the doctoral thesis. The works must be included in the Research Plan as a single unit and be duly shown on the PhD Activity Record.

The works must consist of at least three articles which have been published or accepted for publication. Books or chapters of books can also be submitted, provided the PhD candidate is the first author.

The works must have been accepted for publication after the PhD candidate began the programme.

No more than 4 authors can be included on each of the works submitted. In the event that more authors are shown, the thesis supervisor(s) will be required to submit a detailed report of each author’s contribution to the published work. Basing their decision on the report submitted, the Academic Committee will determine whether the compendium of publications can be accepted as the thesis.

In addition to the publications, the doctoral thesis must include: an introduction in which the thematic unit of the thesis is justified, objectives to be met, an overall summary of the results, discussion of these results and final conclusions.
