It will be either February, May, September, or November. Your thesis will be reviewed and you will be notified by email if any changes need to be made.
When your thesis meets Graduate Studies' requirements, you will receive email notification that it has been added to the UBC Library's c IRcle Institutional Repository.
If you want to request a delay in publication of your thesis, you must do this before you submit electronically.
The instructions now emphasize the importance of having enough additional material in the thesis, written solely by you, to relate the published or submitted manuscripts to each other and to the field of study. In the old manuscript-based format this material could only be in the introductory or concluding chapters; in the current format you can choose where to convey this information - for example, by additional material in the paper-based chapters, or by creating small "bridging" chapters between the papers.
Published material included in a thesis must be considered in light of the standard required for a UBC thesis or dissertation.
