Datasets should be supported by good accompanying documentation which is appropriate to your subject discipline.
If your thesis contains confidential or sensitive data it may not be appropriate to make the full text freely available online.
Similarly if there is the intention to publish the whole, or extracts from, your thesis you may want to restrict access to the electronic version.
Submitting the Soft Bound Thesis The thesis you submit will be the thesis submitted for examination.
It is not possible to 'retract submission' or to send a revised copy directly to your examiners. They will deal with errors of fact and typographical errors that affect the meaning, as well as larger, structural issues.
We do not routinely allow public access to this data; however, if you wish to share your data with others we recommend the Edinburgh Data Share service.
Edinburgh Datashare If you have a lot of supplementary files - for example lots of images, data in multiple spreadsheets or video formats - we don't recommend depositing them in PURE.
If the paper is yet to be submitted for publication when the thesis is submitted for examination, the paper should be re-written as a traditional chapter in the thesis.
Signatures are not required for chapters presented in traditional format. There is no set number of submitted/published papers required in a thesis including published works, although this varies between disciplines.
Originals, not photocopies may be used, in which case these must be secured permanently inside the thesis (not by use of adhesive tape).
You must submit two bound copies of the thesis for examination.
