Publishing from a PhD
Getting work published is increasingly important for PhD students. This is especially the case as the competition for entry-level academic positions increases across the world. Publications are also important when students are new in an academic position, as well as when they are seeking tenure or promotion later on in their careers. Embedding publications in your thesis or converting your thesis into publications after submission, however, is not as straight forward as you might think. Publications such as journal articles and book chapters need to be stand-alone and able to be read and of interest to a much wider readership than that of the dissertation. It is also not usually possible to publish a thesis as a book without revising and reframing it for the broader audience of an academic book. In this workshop, we discuss matters that are important for students to be aware of as they are seeking publication of their work. The workshop will include presentations, panel discussion, and the opportunity for participants to ask questions.
When: Wednesday 8th May, 12-2pm.
Where: John Woolley Building Common Room N480
