DOCUMENTS TO BE GIVEN IN THESIS SUBMISSION

DOCUMENTS TO BE GIVEN IN THESIS/DISSERTATION SUBMISSION

 

1) 3 copies, Printed – Hardcover Thesis/Dissertation

 

2) 3 copies, Compact Disc (CD) that includes the pdf file of Thesis /Dissertation and Thesis/Dissertation Appendix

3) Turnitin Report

 

How to Prepare the Compact Discs:

 

1.  Full text of the Thesis/Dissertation should be loaded in one pdf file. The links on the pdf preparation pages might be used in order to convert the Word files into Pdf files. The explanations for mixed theses/dissertations that include appendix out of text format are to be found in the 6th Item.   

2. The submitted pdf files must be the same with the ones that were approved by the graduate school/faculty of medicine. Since no changes are to be made on the theses/dissertations by the Turkish Council of Higher Education, it is author’s own responsibility to have the printed thesis/dissertation and the digital copy as it is seen on the screen to be the same. The author should be very careful to provide identical appearances on the screen and in the printed copy in terms of page numbering and elements such as pictures, graphics and tables.

3. The file that includes the full text of the thesis/dissertation should not be compressed or encoded. The Appendices are only to be compressed through the WinRAR programme. 

4. While naming the files, the reference numbers in the Thesis/Dissertation Data Entrance Form are to be used. For Example:

For full text; referenceno.pdf

For appendices; referenceno.rar

5. The thesis/dissertation appendices in the form of text or copied (by photocopying) should be included in the pdf file of full text. In order to do this, these documents should be converted into pdf format by means of scanners or digital photocopiers.

6. Mixed Thesis: If the thesis/dissertation is not only made up of a text file and pictures, maps, computer programmes, video or audio records are used, these files should be copied on a CD as one file through WinRAR programme as referenceno.rar, thus by including the reference number.

 

NOTE: The CDs should be put in an impact-resistant CD cover and there must be a tag on it indicating the Title of the Thesis/Dissertation, Name of the Author, Name of the Higher Education Institution, Name of the Institute, Name of the Department of Graduate School and Type of the Thesis in English and Turkish.

 

 

4) 4 copies of signed Thesis Data Entrance and Publishing Permission Forms (reference number on them)

 

How to Fill the Thesis Data Entrance and Publishing Form:

 

1.  Thesis Data Entrance and Publishing Permission Form: This is a document for permission of the author of the thesis/dissertation and aims to offer the work to researchers as a full text (PDF) in all types of research areas including digital transmission by YÖK (Turkish Council of Higher Education) National Thesis Centre that includes the title, name of the author, reference number and other bibliographic data. This form is to be found on the following address: (http://tez.yok.gov.tr/UlusalTezMerkezi). One should be a member of the system to fill this form.

2. The Form is designed to provide the transfer of data which is filled by the author, to a temporary table which is connected to the National Thesis Centre Database. When the form is filled in and “Save” box is clicked, a printable form is prepared by the system which has a “Reference Number” on it. It is possible correct any mistakes due to any reason before printing the form. The Reference Number on the Thesis Data Entrance and Publishing Permission Form is to be taken into consideration during the controls in the National Thesis Centre.

3. Titles and the Abstract Pages of the Theses are loaded into the browsable sections of the Thesis Database. Therefore, symbols and characters such as italic fonts, tables, graphics, chemical or mathematical formulas, symbols, subscripts and superscripts, Greek letters and other non-standard symbols or characters should not be used on such texts.

4. Department, Division, and Sub-Division Parts might be left blank if there are no electable options.

5. Index Terminology: It is the alphabetical list of the key words that provide a direct access to the researched theses in the National Thesis Centre.

6. Proposed Index Terminology: If the related keywords cannot be found on the Index Terminology List in the system, then the English=Turkish equivalents of the proposed keywords shall be written here.

7. Permission for Printing and Postponement: Since the Thesis Data Entrance and Publishing Permission Form also includes the permission text that provides the publishing of the thesis/dissertation via Internet, no other permission forms are to be filled in. The Thesis/Dissertation authors who give consent to the offering of his/her thesis/dissertation to other researchers as a full text through Turkish Higher Education Council National Thesis Database should tick off the option “I allow my thesis to be accessible on the National Thesis Database” on the form. Opening the thesis to access might be postponed for three years if the thesis is in the process of publishing by a publishing house, or, there is any application for patent.
