Doctoral Thesis Defence

Procedures for the deposit and defence of the doctoral thesis For ease of understanding, we separate the process of reading and defending the doctoral thesis into seven steps:

 1. Documents validly signed in the proceedings before the EID:

The Act 39/2015, of 1 October, on the  Common Administrative Procedure for the Public Authorities, sets out in its art. 10.1 that: 
"The interested parties may sign by any means that allows them to prove the authenticity of the expression of their will and consent, as well as the integrity and inalterability of the document." In application of this article, the following shall be admitted for the purposes of the procedures to be carried out at this School:

  1. Valid electronic signature, in accordance with article 10.2 of the Act 39/2015 "recognized or qualified and advanced, based on recognized or qualified electronic certificates of electronic signature issued by providers included in the "List of Trusted Certification Service Providers."For these purposes, the above-mentioned recognized or qualified electronic certificates are understood to include those of legal persons and of entities without legal personality."
  2. Original handwritten signature.
  3. Exceptionally, when circumstances make it difficult to send the document by the above means, the original handwritten signature, scanned in its entirety after signature and sent from the signatory's institutional email address, will be accepted.

In the latter case, the original document will remain in the possession of the issuer in case it is required by the processing body at any time during the procedure.

The insertion of images of signatures shall not be considered a valid form of signature since it does not allow compliance with the requirements of art. 10 of Act 39/2015, as it does not guarantee the authenticity of the expression of the signatory's will and consent.

 

2. Remote assistance in thesis defences: 

Steps for the reading and defence of the doctoral thesis

1. Most recent oversight in RAPI:

  • The procedures for the defence of the doctoral thesis begin with the most recent evaluation in the doctoral candidate's file in RAPI. For this, just as the doctoral candidate has been doing each year, he/she will connect to the tool, perform his or her tasks (generation and updating of the research plan, which is mandatory, and registration of the complementary training activities that may correspond) and ensure that they are accepted by his or her supervisor, who should issue a favourable report, as should his or her tutor and, finally, it is graded by the academic committee of the doctoral programme.
  • NOTE: this step can take place simultaneously with the preliminary evaluation of the doctoral thesis.
2. Preliminary examination of the thesis:

Once the thesis has been completed and before its admission and deposit, the quality of the thesis must be evaluated by two doctors (holders of doctorates) who are experts in the subject matter of the thesis.

APPLICATION FOR PRELIMINARY EXAMINATION

The doctoral candidate, with the authorization of his/her supervisor, will request the coordinator of the doctoral programme to appoint two doctors with accredited research experience to carry out this task.
The two preliminary examiners of the thesis will be proposed, and their research experience accredited, by completion of the form for the accreditation of research experience, which the doctoral candidate will submit together with the application for preliminary evaluation.

APPOINTMENT OF EXAMINERS AND SENDING OF DOCUMENTATION

The coordinator, in view of the research experience accredited in their forms (1), will decide on the suitability of the proposed experts. The doctoral candidate will then be informed, by the means the coordinator considers most appropriate, of the appointment of preliminary examiners, using the notification form for the appointment of preliminary examiners.

Once the appointment is known, the thesis supervisor (as agreed by the EID-UCLM Management Committee on 05/07/2018) will be responsible for sending each of them a copy of the thesis by email in PDF format, together with the form for that report and the request that, within 20 working days of receipt, they should issue a report on the quality of the thesis.

ISSUING OF REPORTS

Each of the experts will send the duly completed and signed report to the coordinator of the doctoral programme.

FORMS

(1) A preliminary examiner for the thesis is required to be able to accredit at least six years of experience in CNEAI research, or its equivalent in scientific production, if the examiner is not legally eligible for this recognition.

 

3. Admission of the thesis for defence:

APPLICATION TO THE ACADEMIC COMMITTEE FOR ADMISSION TO THE THESIS DEFENCE PROCESS:

Once the doctoral candidate is aware of the issuance of the preliminary evaluation reports, and if these are favourable, he/she must request authorization from his/her academic committee for admission to the thesis defence process, with the agreement of his/her supervisor(s).
This application to the programme coordinator must be accompanied by the following documentation:
  • Favourable preliminary examination reports, in case they are not in the possession of the coordinator.
  • The PDF obtained in TESEO with the information entered about the thesis as detailed in point 6.
  • Proof of payment of the doctoral thesis examination fees. The payment letter is available at the Campus Student Affairs Units.
  • The open publication rights assignment licence, according to this form.
  • One printed copy of the thesis and a PDF copy in digital support (on a CD, DVD or pendrive). In addition, the doctoral candidate must submit to the academic committee the copies of the thesis (on paper and/or digital format) it may request for consultation in the departments or centres where studies related to the subject of the thesis are being carried out.
  • Any additional documentation that may be required in the case of a thesis for a compendium of publications or to opt for the mentions of international doctorate, industrial doctorate or thesis cosupervised with a foreign university.

 

 IMPORTANT: Both the doctoral candidate and the thesis supervisor must ensure that they hold the necessary permissions to include in the thesis any content that may be protected by intellectual property rights.    

 FORMS

 

AUTHORISATION FROM THE ACADEMIC COMMITTEE FOR ADMISSION TO THE THESIS DEFENCE PROCESS

Upon receipt of the documentation, having conducted the appropriate verification and as soon as possible, the programme coordinator will authorize, at his/her discretion, the submission of the thesis by signing the corresponding section on the application form, which will then be returned to the receiving department/centre which, in turn, will dispatch the relevant documentation to each destination (1):

To the International Doctorate School (EID):

  • The authorized application
  • The two favourable preliminary reports and the appointment of the experts referred to in section 2.
  • The PDF obtained from TESEO showing that the required data have been filled in.
  • Proof of having paid the doctoral thesis examination fees (these fees are paid at the Campus Registry).
  • A copy of the Open Publication Rights Assignment Licence (the original will be sent to the General Secretary’s Office, as detailed below).
  • A PDF copy of the thesis for public exhibition at the EID (this file can be sent directly by the doctoral candidate to the EID in any way he/she deems appropriate: attached to an email to doctorado@uclm.es, shared from the cloud, on a CD/DVD, on a pendrive, ...).
  • Any additional documentation that may be required in the case of a thesis for a compendium of publications or for opting for the mentions provided for in the regulations.
  • The proposal for the jury that is to judge the thesis and the reports on the research experience of the six experts proposed for it, as described below.

 

Simultaneously, it is necessary to send the following to the General Secretary’s Office of the University:

  • A paper copy of the thesis
  • A PDF copy recorded on a CD, DVD or pendrive.
  • The original open publication rights assignment licence.

 

(1) Alternatively, this submission to each destination may be made by the doctoral candidate or his or her supervisor if so indicated by his or her coordinator.

JURY PROPOSAL:

As mentioned in the previous point, together with the defence admission documentation, the coordinator will send a proposal for the jury that will judge the doctoral thesis according to the form linked below.

The proposed jury will be made up of six experts (three ordinary members and three alternates) with the required research experience, and will be accompanied by the forms for the accreditation of the research experience of each of the six.

In the case of applying for the International Doctorate Mention, the requirements set out in that section of this very page on the composition of the proposed jury will be followed.

FORMS

 

POINTS TO BE TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT WHEN COMPILING THE PROPOSAL:

In accordance with the Regulations of Doctoral Studies of the UCLM regarding the composition of the jury and research experience:

  • The jury that judges the thesis may only have, at most, one member from the UCLM. Thus, for the proposed substitutions to be possible, if a member of the UCLM is an ordinary member of the jury, another doctor from the UCLM may only be included to cater for the possible absence of that ordinary member.
  • All members of the jury will have accredited research activity and possess at least one CNEAI six-year period of research experience, or equivalent research activity, as the case may be. The Chairman and his/her alternate must each have at least two six-year terms of service or equivalent. Any doctor who is legally eligible to apply for six-year period accreditation will not be permitted to accredit them with equivalent merits instead.
  • The supervisors and the tutor of the doctoral candidate cannot be members of the jury.
  • However, preliminary examiners may form part of the jury.
  • The person in charge of the stay for the international doctorate mention may not be a member of the jury.

    

GENDER PARITY ON DOCTORAL THESIS JURIES:

Articles 25 and 26 of the Act 3/2007, of 22 March, for the Effective Equality of Women and Men require, in the field of higher education, the adoption of measures to guarantee balanced representation in advisory, scientific and decision-making bodies in the artistic, cultural and scientific organization chart.

On this point, the UCLM Equality Programme 2020-2024 and, in particular, its strand 4, measure 53, proposes among the actions in the field of research "To foster the presence of women in research bodies and committees, promoting the introduction of the gender perspective in all scientific branches".

In view of the above, parity must be respected for the juries that are to judge doctoral theses, with the presence of at least one member of each gender on the jury to be constituted. In the event that any proposed jury does not comply with this, a supporting report must be submitted explaining the reasons for this.

   

INTERNATIONAL DOCTORATE MENTION:

Students who wish to obtain the International Doctorate Mention in their doctoral degree must attach the following, in addition to the above documents:

  • Application for certification of the International Doctorate Mention according to the form linked below, which will specify the language chosen for the defence of the thesis, as well as the rest of the requirements.
  • Certificate issued by the foreign centre where the stay took place, indicating the start and end dates of the stay, endorsed by the thesis supervisor and authorized by the corresponding academic committee. At least 3 months of stay abroad in one or more periods of at least one month's duration shall be accredited. The person in charge of the stay in the foreign centre may not be a member of the jury, but he/she may be a preliminary examiner of the thesis.
    IMPORTANT: in the event that the period of stay corresponds exactly to the legally established minimums (three months for a single stay or one month for several stays), these must appear on the certificate and the exact period must be indicated (for example: from 15 March to 15 June, from 1 July to 1 October).
  • The authorization from the academic committee for the stay, if it was not sent to the EID in advance of the stay (recommended), using the form available within the procedure.

In theses that apply for this mention, the preliminary examination of doctoral thesis report referred to in section 2 must be issued by a doctor attached to a foreign higher education institution or a research institute.

At least one doctor belonging to a non-Spanish university or research centre, and who is not the person superintending the stay outside Spain, must be a member of the doctoral thesis assessment jury. Provision should be made for this person to be replaced by a second one who satisfies the same criterion. 

 FORMS:

 

INDUSTRIAL DOCTORATE MENTION:

Doctoral candidates who opt for the Industrial Doctorate Mention in their doctoral degree must also provide the following documentation together with the application for admission to the defence process:

  • Application for accreditation of the Industrial Doctorate Mention on the official form (copy available below).
  • Copy of the employment or commercial contract maintained with the contracting company or with a public authority, or the candidate's employment record, showing his/her relationship with the company for a minimum period of six months, which must be included in the period of time between the candidate's first enrolment and the admission of the doctoral thesis for processing.
  • Report describing the activities carried out in the research or experimental development project in which the doctoral candidate has participated and which accredits the direct relation with the thesis produced.
