Current News - the publications of the Universities of Applied Sciences all at one address

The theses and staff publications of the Universities of Applied Sciences can now all be found at just one address: Theseus offers the publications of the Finnish Universities of Applied Sciences for free online for anyone to read. Enjoy acquainting yourself with our service!

The students themselves upload their work and accept the electronic terms of use, in which they grant their University of Applied Science the right to publish their work. 

Publications by the staff of the Universities of Applied Sciences can also be found in Theseus. The staff publications have their own section in Theseus.

It is possible to use a Creative Commons licence - a copyright system that was developed for online environments - at Theseus. Creative Commons enables the author to share their work online under terms that they can specify themselves. You can find more information about Creative Commons on the Theseus site as well as on the Creative Commons Finland site at

Logging into Theseus can be done with the usernames and passwords provided by the students' universities. Only uploading requires logging in. Otherwise, the materials are available to everyone as Open Access publications.

Theseus enables the use of the CSC Stream application. Audio and video publications are carried out, for now, by persons appointed for support tasks at the Universities of Applied Sciences.

The CSC Stream service provides a reliable distribution channel for the audio-visual materials of the customers. Streaming is a fast and efficient way to use moving image and audio materials online. It is possible to view the video instantaneously after the data transfer has been initiated, in which the user does not need to download the entire file onto their computer.

The material that is saved on the CSC media servers is available, for example, as a part of the study components in the customer's online learning environment as well as in the provision of information on their websites. Publishing Flash video content is a new feature of the CSC Stream service. The service development that is carried out by CSC is based on their collaboration with Theseus and the requests received from other customers.

Theseus is a service that is offered by Arene ry, the Rectors' Conference of Finnish Universities of Applied Sciences. Ask about Theseus and the services that it offers from your university library!
