Submission and examination index
From iSchool Current Students
The index below provides links to the R&IS webpages on the submission of your thesis. As this is a centrally managed process, and the process changes from time to time, it is most appropriate to obtain the information from these webpages to ensure that you have the most up-to-date information.
Please note that from 1st February 2014, all submissions and re-submissions will be run through Turnitin.
As well as submitting your final submission through Turnitin as set out below, you must also submit hard copies to Research and Innovation Services - to find out more about what you need to do, please visit http://www.shef.ac.uk/ris/pgr/code/submission.
- Log into MUSE
- Click on MyServices at the top of the page, and then on MOLE
- Click on the INF Research Student Submissions link in the Courses List
- Click on the appropriate Turnitin link
- Click on the 'Final PhD Thesis Submission' link
- Complete the ‘Submit Paper: by file upload form’, and attach your thesis.
- Email Matt Jones to confirm you have submitted your thesis , who will then pass this on to the Unfair Means Officer for review.
Please be aware that you can only submit to this link once.
NB: Turnitin has a file size limit of 20mb, and a page limit of 400. If your file is bigger or longer than these limits, you will need to split the Turnitin submission into two documents and submit them separately. If you are in this position, please let the Research and Resources Administrator know straight away. Please also be aware that these file limits only apply to your Turnitin submission - see the link above regarding reproduction and binding for details on how to submit the hard copy of your thesis.
