Publishing During Candidature
Publishing during candidature may be useful for a number of reasons:
- Provides useful peer review feedback
- Thesis markers may look more favourably on work that has already been peer-reviewed and published
- Your name becomes visible and marks your territory in the academic community
- Looks impressive on your CV when applying for academic/research positions and grants
Tips for Publishing During Candidature
- Present at conferences and convert your paper into a journal article (must alter paper by more than 50% or not publish in proceedings)
- Publish book reviews
- Target postgraduate journals
- Adapt discrete chapters which are easily contextualised. Remember a journal audience is different from a thesis audience and adapt accordingly. Avoid over referencing.
- Collaborate with established researchers (such as your supervisor) if appropriate
