Why make your Master thesis available in ODA

As a researcher or a student, you depend upon access to other scientist’s research such as master thesis, articles and other research output. The availability of content is made possible by solidarity in the research community and that each researcher makes the decision to grant access to their publications. OsloMet encourages students and staff to deposit their work in Open repositories like ODA.

When submitting the thesis, we would like you to provide us with a date when the embargo may be lifted. If you have questions regarding publishing your thesis on ODA please send an email to:
