Workshop Description

Imagine that you have successfully completed your thesis. Beyond your oral defence, how can you share your insights and discoveries with a wider audience? One possibility is to seek the publication of your thesis. This workshop aims to take you through the steps of turning your thesis into a book. Along the way, I will share my experience of getting my PhD thesis published as a monograph. There will also be opportunity for discussion via questions and answers at the end of workshop.
