Chapter 54: How can you publish from your dissertation?

Katherine Rosenbusch


Doctoral students can be bombarded with advice that starts in the first week of the program and extends all of the way through to publishing the findings from their doctoral research. However, it’s more important to affirm for yourself what you want to accomplish. The chapter illustrates this by recounting some of the struggles and challenges experienced by the author while publishing from her dissertation. Using personal anecdotes, it offers advice enabling students to progress to publication. These anecdotes include setbacks and failures as well as triumphs and successes. A few commonly asked questions are answered, such as, “Which journals are right for my research?”, “Who should I publish with?” and “What is a realistic timeframe to get papers and book chapters from my dissertation published?” The chapter ends with several useful publishing lessons.
