The dissertation must be published and delivered to the UEF library at least 10 days before the public examination. If the dissertation is published only electronically, the candidate should nevertheless deliver a paper copy for public viewing to the UEF library.

Instructions for publishing online can be found here (see Publication instructions for electronic publishing).
