Doctorate and degree final papers
BEM does not keep degree thesis nor doctoral ones.
UNITO makes available the public thesis archive, which contains the title and abstract of the theses uploaded from 2009. Information are available after 90 days from the date of online delivery of the paper (however thesis cannot be viewed in full format and either any attached documents are not available).
With regard to doctoral theses, starting from the XXVI cycle (2013), UNITO made it compulsory to deposit them as open access materials within the APERTO institutional archive.
