For those of you nearing the end of the dissertation writing process, or if you want to start looking ahead, PhD2Published is a great online resource.
Offering articles, tips, and video blogs with information for academics looking to publish for the first time, PhD2Published is a must read for dissertation writers who plan to continue on in academia.
Here’s a sampling of what the site offers, but I recommend you check it out for yourself:
- Publisher tips from Oxford University Press: “Almost no PhD dissertation can translate unproblematically into a book: the needs of examiner and reader are different.”
- Tools of the Writing Trade: “The interesting thing about doing a PhD, but which seldom gets discussed, is the natural way you tend to evolve your own techniques for writing and researching.”
- Video Blog, Episode 1: “Here is the first episode in my video blog/diary of my own journey to getting my first academic book published.”
