About this book

More researchers and academics than ever are now choosing to collate their accumulated published work into a PhD. Universities offer a range of pathways to achieving a PhD by Published Work but there is little guidance available for potential or existing students. This much-needed book provides a practical and comprehensive guide to all aspects of the award.

Informed by surveys of academic staff from around the world, the text provides an honest assessment of the pros and cons of various routes and helps you to select a pathway that's right for you. It demystifies key processes and aspects of the award, such as navigating regulations, writing a synthesis and preparing for a vice voce examination. In addition, PhD by Published Work provides a wealth of guidance on how to maximise the impact of your publication outputs and improve your success rate with journals. Each chapter is enriched with activities, questions and advice from those who have successfully completed the award to help you get the most out of your doctoral experience.
