Prizewinning papers are made available to the general public by agreement with Copenhagen University Library. Unsuccessful papers are archived by the relevant Faculties, and are not available to be read.

At the University Library, University of Copenhagen holds a collection of prize papers awarded the gold or silver medal from 1920 up to today. New papers are added, but the collection is not complete. In principle, the papers are available to readers, although the condition of some of the older manuscripts means that they are only available in the reading room.

Former prize papers are archived at the Royal Danish Library. You can search for them here.
