Once the process of evaluation of academic work has finished, they are kept in the university itself. However:


They can only be consulted if there are no impediments arising from the corresponding industrial and intellectual property.
Online access Online access to the full text is only possible if the corresponding author allows it.

Taking these premises into account, the conditions of access to work are:

Open access work
  • They can be consulted in open access if the corresponding author allows it.
  • The authors of some of the works have granted a license Creative Commons in your work, a license with which users can make the uses of the work detailed in the license without having to ask for their prior permission.

Jobs in support fphysical o Restricted by decision of the author

  • If the work is in physical format, or if the author of the work does not want to disseminate it publicly online, it can be consulted in the depository library or in the Archive of the school (if the library does not have a copy in its background).
  • Excluded from this public consultation works whose content may affect the confidentiality or industrial property of third parties.
  • If the work is restricted by decision of the author and it has published its email address to UPCommons, the users can contact with him.
Confidential jobs
  • For example, they are the jobs that you want to request a patent or that are subject to confidentiality clauses established by the company where the project was developed.
  • If the confidentiality of the work establishes that the concealment of files must only be temporary, once the embargo period has expired, the document will be deposited with open access if the corresponding author allows it.

The works carried out in the framework of CampusLab , both in physical support and online, can be retrieved at Discovery UPC.

 TFE in paper and online

Online assignments can also be retrieved at UPCommons, whose facets allow results to be filtered according to needs (TFG only, PFM only, awarded worksEtc.).

 TFE online

It should also be noted that CampusLab:
