Does an electronic publication do away with the need to submit printed statutory copies?
Make sure to chekc with your advisor(s) and your deanery, whether a publication on the University Library Bern servers or repository is considered to be an additional form of publication or if it replaces the requirement to submit statutory copies or the publication with a publishing house. The individual faculties deal with this in different ways. You will find details in the relevant PhD regulations.
