You can choose "Dissertation with embargo" if the doctoral regulations applicable to you allow this and there are
copyright or patent law reasons for an embargo period. You must determine the expiry date of the embargo yourself. It is your
responsibility to weigh up all aspects that may have an influence on the expiry date of the embargo (e.g. doctoral regulations, publishing
conditions, patent application) (example
). Until the automatic release of your dissertation after expiry of
the embargo period, an abstract of the dissertation will be published. This must also be provided by you.
You can choose the option "The dissertation is part of a series" if your dissertation as been accepted as part of a series (e.g. Kiel

dissertation that has been accepted by the editors of the series.
