The doctoral theses of the Aalto University are produced through the Aalto University publication platform. The platform generates the required ISBN and ISSN numbers along with the Aalto University serial numbers. After the order has been placed, the publication platform will send the thesis to the printing house.

Aalto University recommends using Unigrafia for printing, but the doctoral student can choose freely any printing house. In such case the doctoral student requests offers from the printing houses themselves.

The student will select the printing house in the publishing platform. In practice, there are two options in the platform: Unigrafia or other printing house. If the student chooses other printing house, they will receive instructions from the university publication support on how to proceed with the printing.
