如何發表博士論文 How to Publish your Ph.D.
決定格式 Decide on the format
You can publish your Ph.D. in several ways: as a book, as a journal article, as a series of journal articles, as a conference paper, as an internal university document, or as a specialist society publication.
出版書籍 Publishing it as a book
Commercial publishers will not publish your Ph.D, but you can self-publish it. There are several companies offering this service that you can find on the Internet. If you decide to make your Ph.D. into a book, you should rewrite it, focusing on the story rather than the research.
撰寫提案 Writing a proposal
Your proposal should be concise and to the point. Remember that an editor will have other people within the business to persuade. Make it easy for them by being realistic and market-focused. Your proposal should identify: the subject particulars of the book, the intended audience, how you intend to structure your book, and what your book will offer that others do not. Provide a single sample chapter if you can.
選擇出版社 Choosing a publisher
慎選出版社。您可以查詢《出版資訊大全》 (Directory of Publishing) 或《作家與藝術家年鑑》(The Writers’ and Artists’ Yearbook) 等出版目錄。不妨與同事和主管討論您的提案。瞭解他們與各家出版社接觸的經驗，他們會推薦哪一家出版社。用電子郵件將您的提案發送給指定的個人。
Choose a publisher carefully. You can consult directories such as the Directory of Publishing or The Writers’ and Artists’ Yearbook. It would be a good idea to discuss your proposal with colleagues and your supervisor. Find out what experience they have had with various publishers, and whom they would recommend. Send your proposal to a named individual by email.
