ACS provides a PhD Thesis app for ACS PhD candidates from Amsterdam UMC graduating in 2020 and 2021. Using this app you can upload your thesis and make it interactive by adding videos, photos, animations and Google Maps navigation to ceremony and reception. It is also possible to incorporate professional social media networks (such as LinkedIn, ResearchGate and Google Scholar) and science networks like PubMed.

All theses from ACS researchers will be bundled and freely available through this ACS Thesis app. The cover of your thesis and a link to your thesis will appear in our monthly newsletter with all ACS PhD defenses for the coming month. Therefore, it is important to upload your thesis in time in order to be visible at the announcement.

You can access the ACS Thesis app and see all uploaded ACS PhD theses via ACS Thesis app.
