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 limit your search, click on one of the tabs in the top menu, for example Profiles or Research Output. You can also filter your search by using the filters that will be visible in the left hand menu when you have made your search.

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. In LIBRIS, go to Refine your search in the right hand menu and select Theses under Type. In LUBsearch, go to Search Filters in the left hand menu and select Dissertations/Theses under Material Types.

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.
