Thesis Deliverables

For each thesis, we need these things:

  1. All registration paperwork in order.
  2. One bound physical copy of the thesis for Prof. Riehle; the Prüfungsamt may need more copies.
  3. All data and files in electronic form, provided to Prof. Riehle. Data and files may include:
    • The thesis source (Word, Libre/OpenOffice or LaTeX)
    • Source code (if the source code is part of a larger open source project, a link to the public repository is sufficient)
    • All empirical data, including audio files from interviews
    • All results for qualitative data analysis
    • Any R source code and resulting data
  4. A PDF for web-publishing; student theses are blogged in the finished-theses category.
  5. Theses of the type “teaching case” also need to include a sign-off from the interview subject.

The style of a student thesis should conform to our general rules for structure and layout of final thesis. Also, students sometimes wonder about the “wissenschaftlicher Anspruch” (scientific aspiration) of a final thesis. Different theses have different requirements and we explain them in these pages as well.

Additional useful materials are being collected in this Drive folder.
