Casimir theses and ISBN

Casimir offers PhD students support in printing their thesis. This is done by providing an ISBN code and maintaining a list of regularly used printers.

To request an ISBN code, please send an email to stating the following information:

  • the full title of your thesis,
  • the date and time of the thesis defense,
  • the date of approval of your thesis,
  • the name(s) of your promotor(s) and supervisor(s),
  • the estimated number of pages and
  • the NUR code (Dutch Uniform Subject Classification - consisting of a three-digit number designating the publication's subject). Please choose between: 923: Cell and Molecular Biology, 924: Physics, general, 925: Theoretical physics, 926: Experimental physics, 927: Biophysics, 928: Computational physics, or 929: Mechanics.

If this does not cover the topic of your thesis, please check the document in the below and look up the correct NUR code.

We also would like to hear what your planning to do next. 

We will provide you with an ISBN code a.s.a.p.. In return, you are requested to mention the Casimir PhD Series on the back and on the colophon page of your thesis. Details will be mailed to you as soon as we received the required information.
