12th PhD Café – With Zdenka Günzel from the University Library, IKMZ, 7th Floor, 18 April 2023, 15:30–17:00 h

In the next PhD Café we will inform you about second publications in dissertations.


Second Publication in Dissertations  

Would you like to include your own publications in your dissertation?

We would like to inform you about the possibilities of integration, whether it is a citation or a second publication, and what you should already consider before submitting your publication to a publisher. The event will be held mainly in English.
