The next steps

Once you have submitted your thesis you can consider the possibilities of publishing your work:

Discuss ideas with your

  • supervisor
  • colleagues
  • research group


  • Check whether your chosen publication has any effect on your ability to publish same/similar content in your thesis
  • Check the acceptance rates for your chosen publication
  • How long the process takes, from submission to publication.
  • Does your chosen publication require any payments, e.g. for tables, illustrations? Or if you choose an Open Access publisher, what are their charges?

  • Use these keywords throughout the piece 
  • Your title should lead with the most important keywords, be relatively short and clearly indicate the content of the work
  • These keywords will make it easier for future researchers to find your work
