Publishing in the TRAIL thesis series

TRAIL supports her PhD students in publishing their dissertation in the TRAIL Thesis Series, a scientific series of more than 300 titles.

When you start working on your manuscript and/or when you have set a date for your public defence, please contact the TRAIL office ( We will provide you with all kinds of pratical information on the printing process, e.g.:

  • a time schedule;
  • a standard TRAIL lay-out of the manuscript and the cover;

  • an ISBN-number;
  • a TRAIL series number.

During the final stages of the printing process  – once the manuscript is send to the printer –  the PhD student will be in close contact with the printer, since he/she will be responsible for the end result. TRAIL will monitor this process and is available for all kinds of questions.
