The study that is to be sent (and thesis included) should not have been published or already in the process of evaluation for publishing on any medium before.

Therefore, sending a text to be reviewed and decided by the committee means the study has neither been published nor already in the process of decision for publication.

When a text is approved explicitly to be published, that means the study will not be published in a journal, English or in any other language, without the permission of the owner of the text.
