Chapter 53: A tale of three dissertations: experiences of transforming mentored research into an article
Restricted access

Nobel Laureate Sir Fraser Stoddart has suggested that the most important way a scholar demonstrates impact is through their legacy of mentoring emerging scholars. Publishing with students, especially those who are completing a dissertation or thesis, is an important act of mentorship. The chapter discusses three types of experiences in publishing articles from a student’s doctoral dissertation. The first approach is the path of least resistance for the student—doing nothing, but simply vanishing after the dissertation without taking any further steps. The second is for the student to go it alone in the process of distilling an article from the dissertation. A third option is to continue the mentoring relationship and co-author a journal article from the student’s dissertation. Next, the chapter addresses the consideration of self-plagiarism, before concluding with a list of important tips to remember when working on transforming your dissertation into a journal article.
