Correct description in the PDFs properties

Published on

Before you send your digital phd thesis or report to Wageningen UR Library's e-depot, please check the publication name in the PDFs properties.

If you submit a digital publication as a PDF to the library, such as a dissertation, an MSc thesis or a report, the PDF will be deposited in the e-depot and made publicly available at no cost in the Library Catalogue. Search engines, such as Google, index the PDF's information. For this reason, it's important to give the publication a good name in the PDF’s 'properties' before you submit it. When saving the publication as a PDF, fill in the correct title and author's name in File, properties. This information is also indexed by Google and is visible in the research results. If you fill in something odd like ‘draft’ or ‘version 14’, then this will also appear in the results!
