EPFL scientific publications
The Library plays its part in promoting the EPFL publications. It is involved in highlighting them and makes them available as much as possible to researchers, students and the public. The EPFL PhD theses, Master’s dissertations in some sections and books written by EPFL members also form part of our collections. A great number of other types of publications (articles, reports, patents …) are also available online in the EPFL open institutional archive, Infoscience, the content of which is managed by the Library.
