Digital Thesis archive

All students of the Faculty of Humanities must submit their Master’s thesis in the Unversity Library's digital thesis archive. This is required in order to graduate. For questions you can contact the Student Information Desk Humanities.


  1. Go to Scripties Online
  2. Log in with your Solis ID (student number) and password. You will then be directed to the page where you fill in you data.
  3. Fill in your student number. Your name and study programme will automatically be filled in.
  4. Fill in the rest of the form. This should be no problem. If you have any problems, you can consult the instruction manual via the 'help' button at the bottom of the page. Also read the tips below on what you should consider when uploading.
  5. Once you have uploaded your thesis, an email verifying this will automatically be send to the Student Desk Humanities.
  • Your thesis must be approved by your supervisor before you can upload it to the archive.
  • Remember to list the title of your thesis in the language in which it was written. Write the abstract in the same language.
  • Your thesis will appear in the archive as soon as your exam date has been registered. If you have written a thesis together with another student, then it will be posted on the date on which the first of you has graduated.
  • The theses are available to the public unless you choose to prohibit publication. You may choose to block access to your thesis permanently or until a certain date, for example because you wish to continue your research on the subject. The thesis itself will not be displayed, but the bibliographic information will be visible to the public. You may also choose to block access to your thesis at a later date by sending an email to the Student Desk Humanities with your name, student number and the title of your thesis. If you are the co-author of the thesis, you must coordinate this with the other author or authors.
  • Exercise caution when including personal data -such as telephone numbers- in your thesis.
  • Theses should preferably be submitted in PDF format. Only those theses submitted in PDF format will remain permanently accessible and legible. You may also submit the thesis in MS Word format, but the archive cannot guarantee that it will be supported in the long term. If you would prefer to submit the thesis in a format other than PDF or MS Word, then you must inform Scripties Online in advance:
  • Send an email to if you wish to upload a second thesis.
