Submit your thesis

CERN Library collects theses related to all CERN activities. The Theses collection is made up of some 10,000, mainly PhD, theses.

Submit your thesis to the CERN Document Server (CDS)

By submitting your thesis, it will become easy accessible for all members of the community. CDS offers augmented accessibility to the information compared to thesis only stored at university servers.

Who should submit their thesis?

  • Students paid by CERN (CERN Doctoral Student Program)
  • Students having used CERN equipment

Old or new undergraduate and graduate (Diploma, Bachelor, Master, PhD, etc) theses are accepted.

Examples of theses to be submitted to CDS:

  • Theses processing ATLAS data or ATLAS code
  • Theses related to beamtime or beam optics in the SPS north area
  • Theses evaluating any workflows or processes at CERN (not necessarily related to physics, engineering or IT)
