Envisioning Your Dissertation as Something Else Entirely is the second installment in TWEED’s Dissertation-to-Book series of guides. Here, TWEED outlines several options for the dissertation awaiting revision:
- Craft a scholarly monograph
- Contribute to an edited dissertation series
- Parcel the research out into one journal article or several
- Publish electronically
- Blaze your own trail entirely
As you weigh the possibilities, consider your own unique situation. Do you have time restraints? Is your next project urgently awaiting your attention? What publication venues are most esteemed in your field? Does your dissertation topic need more space, or would it be best complemented by some additional research? Envisioning Your Dissertation as Something Else Entirely gives you plenty to think about as you and your dissertation move on to bigger and better vistas.
