Graduate Research: Theses & Dissertations: Academic Publishing of Your Research

Publish Your Research

A goal of original research beyond investigating problems and solutions is to disseminate information to add to the body of knowledge and to communicate with other researchers and scholars. 

Results of graduate research projects may be published before or after completing a thesis or dissertation.  Some graduate degrees allow for incorporating published journal articles into the thesis or dissertation document as chapters.  Check with your graduate advisor to determine if that is an option, or if you need to follow a more traditional format. 

Regardless, begin thinking about potential scholarly publication outlets early in the planning and writing stages.  Check out the resources on this page to help in your decision-making process.
