Milestone 12

Publishing out of your thesis


An extra dimension of your research activities is to publish from the research as it is being undertaken and from the thesis when it is completed. Such publications will include such things as conference proceedings, academic and professional journals, chapters in scholarly books, as well as a scholarly book of your own. If you are doing a PhD where you are required to publish papers as the research project proceeds, you will already have engaged this milestone. For all other candidates, we recommend that you follow a similar practice in publishing as you go and not wait until after you have completed.
