Personal Guidance

If you choose Proefschrifterij, you will be guided by the same colleagues from start to finish. From your quote request to the eventual delivery of your proof copy. We have in-house designers, maintain personal contact with you through a small team, and ensure that you can start quickly. We keep the instructions simple; Proefschrifterij assists you from beginning to end, whatever your plans may be.

Long History and Experience

Since 2006, our parent company Boekscout has been involved in the design and publishing of books and dissertations. What started as a publishing house for mostly debut authors has evolved into a company active in all areas of the publishing field.

In addition to our parent company Uitgeverij Boekscout, we also have our own self-publishing branch called BoekXpress. At Proefschrifterij, we specifically focus on PhD students and candidates. With our years of experience and knowledge across all aspects of the field, we are committed to ensuring that your dissertation, after all the work you've put into it, receives the perfect finishing touch. A team of professionals is ready to assist you. Get to know our team.

Collaboration with Universities

In the past years, we have had the privilege of printing dissertations for PhD candidates from universities in the Netherlands and Belgium. An overview of these universities can be found at the bottom of the page.

For a significant number of universities, we can offer a special university discount of 10%. Please mention your university when requesting your quotation. This way, we can also provide you with targeted advice.

If your university is not listed, don't worry – we can assist you. We will work with you to explore the agreements and conditions set for the doctoral process.

Meet Our Team?

We are located in the middle of the Netherlands, Soest to be precise, directly adjacent to the Soest-Zuid train and bus station. To keep costs as low as possible for you as a PhD candidate, we do not have branch offices at all universities but rather invite you to visit us. This way, we have everything at hand, and you can meet the team.

We are available by phone during office hours, but it is also possible to schedule a video meeting (via platforms like Teams) to get to know us further.

If you prefer to send an email, that's also an option. Send your questions to, and you will generally receive a response within one working day.
