Dissertations and Research Publications

In order to find dissertations and research material, you can use LUBcat and LUBsearch. However, if you a looking for research specifically from Lund University, you can find a great deal in the Research Portal.

In the Research Portal, the public interface for information posted in LUCRIS, you can do a free text search in the search box. To narrow your search, click on one of the tabs in the top menu, for example Researcher or Research Outputs and click on More filtering options. Aside from selecting author, year, and institution, you can also decide whether you want popular science or quality controlled publications. Read more about scholarly texts here.

Some publications are open access, meaning that you can access them freely, while you have to log in with you Lucat or Student account to view others. Some publications can be found in full text, either as PDF, via DOI or links, from for example Google Scholar. If the publication is not available in full text format in the Research Portal, the reason may be that we do not have the rights to upload it to our institutional repository. However, you can try finding the title in LUBcat and LUBsearch, and check whether it is available (printed or electronically) there.

You can sort your results by dissertations in both LIBRIS and LUBsearch. Select dissertations under Refine your search>Type in the right hand menu LIBRIS. In LUBsearch: select Material Types in the left hand menu, and click dissertations/theses.

You can also find research publications via Google Scholar, which collects many forms of scholarly texts. Articles and other material that the Lund University Libraries have the license to, can often be accessed in full text format directly via Google Scholar, as long as you have logged in with your Lucat or Student account. However, please note that everything that you can find in Google Scholar is not quality controlled. Read more about evaluating sources.
