Publication of the thesis in TDX

The TDX server allows users to consult the full text of theses and to search by author, title, topic and university at which the thesis was read.


The service is coordinated by the Consortium of Academic Libraries of Catalonia (CBUC) and the Supercomputing Centre of Catalonia Consortium (CESCA) and is sponsored by the Catalan Ministry of Universities, Research and the Information Society. Its main aims are:


  • To disseminate the research results of Catalan universities via the Internet to the rest of the world.
  • To provide the authors of doctoral theses with a tool for increasing the accessibility and impact of their work.
  • To improve bibliographic management of doctoral theses read at Catalan universities.
  • To encourage electronic publication and the creation of digital libraries.
  • To promote the creation and use of scientific production at Catalan universities.


The digital copies uploaded to the TDX server must be the original versions of the theses deposited at the Doctoral School prior to reading and defence. For theses read before 2004, a digitised version of the original paper copy submitted to the Doctoral School should be uploaded.
