Germano, William

From dissertation to book Germano, William - Chicago The University of Chicago Press 2005 - x, 141 p.

All new PhD's hope that their dissertations can become books. But a dissertation is written for a committee, and a book for the world. William Germano's From Dissertation to Book is the essential guide for academic writers who want to revise a doctoral thesis for publication. The author of Getting It Published, Germano draws upon his extensive experience in academic publishing to provide writers with a state-of-the-art view of how to turn a dissertation into a manuscript that publishers will notice. Acknowledging first that not all theses can become books, Germano shows how some dissertations might have a better life as one or more journal articles or as chapters in a newly conceived book.
