AUAS Library

Publishing Thesis

If you have finished your AUAS thesis, the Library can ensure that it is available to others throughout the world.


Once you have successfully completed your study, you could have your thesis added to a knowledge base and, by doing this, share the results of all your hard work with others. A number of options are possible:

  • Publication in the HvA Kennisbank: only accessible to AUAS students and staff;
  • Publication in the HBO Kennisbank: accessible to everyone and findable via search engines like Google.

Please note that it is also possible to have your thesis added to a knowledge base at a later date.

Which factors do you need to take into account?

Be aware that your thesis will become available to others, so:

  • do not publish any privacy-sensitive or company-sensitive data;
  • do not publish any confidential information;
  • ask for the approval of your graduation company/client;
  • Bear copyright requirements in mind when using texts and images.

What to do if your degree programme does not add theses to the knowledge base?

Please contact the Library via our webpage Ask the Library.


You could also opt to have your thesis added to the national HBO Kennisbank, making it possible for anyone to retrieve your thesis via search engines like Google. It will be easy for you to refer to your thesis too, because it will be allocated a permanent weblink.
