How to upload a thesis on iskwiki

Theses may be archived on iskWiki. For thesis uploaders, please remove personal information that you feel uncomfortable sharing publicly. Readership may also be limited to those with UP Webmail accounts by filing such request with our Helpdesk.


Follow the Revised Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) of the University of the Philippines System AND your own academic unit's policy on online thesis archiving. The Office of the President, in particular, has issued the memo on Public Access to Theses, Dissertations and Defense Proceedings for immediate and strict compliance. It contains a sample cover page for your thesis. A supplementary Guidelines for Public Access to Theses and Dissertations has also been issued by the Vice Chancellor for Research and Development.

PDF uploads vs. Flipbook uploads of theses


  • Flipbook uploads are more secure because they do not allow direct cut/copy/paste/download options to thesis.
  • PDF uploads are easier to share because users can download a copy of them.
  • For security reasons, "PDF only" uploads will reflect only after a system check has been completed.
