Thesis upload technical issues

  • You can upload only 1 document/file to Neptun (zip or pdf).
  • Please, name the file the following way: (Name_Neptuncode_szd_2023_24_1). Example: Smith_Peter_XCVRQ2_szd_2023_24_1
  • The maximal file size you can upload is 200 MB.
  • The maximum number of characters you can enter in the “Abstract” field is 500. If you enter more than 500 characters in the “Abstract” field, you will get the following error message in Hungarian: “Az entitás érvénytelen attribútummal rendelkezik. A(z) Extra2 értéke túl hosszú (Jelenlegi: …, Megengedett: 500).” If you get this error message, shorten the text in the “Abstract” field. (It is no problem if the text in the “Abstract field is different from the actual abstract in your Thesis document.)
