    RERO DOC is the electronic platform used the University of Fribourg for the electronic publication of PhD theses. Previously published theses (eThesis) are also available on RERO DOC.

Furthermore, RERO DOC ensures a digital long-term preservation of these documents since they are archived on the servers of the Swiss National Library.
