Posted in Discover the Future of Research on Aug 6, 3: This post is entirely aimed at those of us who spend months on end delivering a thesis of several hundreds of pages. We might be overly proud of having our baby finally sent out into the world, but then it will dawn upon us: The only one who would ever want to read through it all and spend an entire week making sense of your thesis is a fellow PhD student….
And thus, for most of us "big book"-thesis-writing-and-publishing folks, we'll need to revisit all our material again after publication of the thesis, and turn it into a number of journal papers.
If you are lucky enough to get into a post-doc position that is fully research-oriented, you have all the time or at least, you might think you have to write your papers.
If you venture out into the industry, you'll have to do it in your evenings and weekends. Regardless of the time constraints, it's still extremely valuable to take the step of turning your dissertation into journal papers.
Two years past my thesis defense, I'm reaching the end of this process with a number of papers published, a number in review and a few more to write.
Below are some of my observations on the process. Plan for it After you graduate, life is going to take over. Take some time while your dissertation is still freshly printed, and ask yourself the following questions: Then, start planning paper by paper.
I typically give my co-authors maximum a month to send their feedback. The feedback is usually limited, so I might need just a morning to make a few changes, and then submit. Enlist some good co-authors Now that you have -hopefully- worked well with your thesis committee members, and implemented their advice to deliver the final draft of your dissertation, is there any part of your research that particularly benefited from their input?
If you are planning to write a paper on this topic, consider inviting this committee member to be a co-author. Writing with authors other than your supervisor will improve your writing, and is typically well-received in most fields.
Publishing with different authors shows that you can work across research groups and universities and that you are ready to reach out into the world. Remember that not all papers are born equal Some papers will roll out from your dissertation in just a few writing sessions.
For other papers you'll be sweating and sighing as you try to force a piece of research into a stand-alone narrative. Don't get mad at yourself or your work - just accept this fact as it is.
And if the frustration becomes too much, head to the gym, grab some chocolate or do whatever typically relieves your stress. Have you published several papers from the work in your dissertation? How did you organize this, and what advice would you like to share with me?There are arguments presented against writing several publications from a doctoral dissertation (Morse, ; Webb, ) although several of these have been tempered of late as doctoral dis- sertation by publication is becoming an accepted practice.
