Once the first draft of the thesis (version 1) is completed, an external evaluation process must be passed. The first step will be to pass a process for plagiarism detection.
To be able to initiate this process it is required:
- Have completed the minimum number of hours of activities required by the doctoral program (recognized in the doctoral student's academic record).
- Having completed the first draft of the thesis agreed by the thesis supervisors
The draft of the thesis (V1) will be sent automatically to Turnitin, a tool for plagiarism detection.
After the successfully pass of this first step, the draft will be sent to a group of researchers external to UPV experts in the subject of the thesis.
The process starts by the thesis director, making the proposal of external evaluators.
