(uploaded March 2021)

This podcast on “Publishing Your Thesis” is the result of an NCIS webinar featuring panelists Jess Farr-Cox (academic editor), Dr Lyle Skains (creative digital writer) and Dr Jasmine Shadrack (music sociologist).

The questions tackled in this podcast include:

  • whether to publishing your research as journal articles or as a book…or both!
  •  the emotional effect of revisiting your thesis
  •  the transition from thesis to book
  •  when to reach out to a publisher
  • personal writing style: academic or narrative
  • digital vs. print publications
