Although the University of Otago does not offer a specific PhD by publication programme (where publications are bound together for submission), you are encouraged to include publications in a PhD thesis where it is appropriate to do so.

Published material can be included providing:

  1. Copyright permission has been obtained.
  2. The material is reformatted to be consistent with the thesis chapter format.

It is important that the thesis forms a coherent and integrated document.
