'Every PhD student should buy a copy of How to Publish your PhD before and not after they enroll for a doctoral degree. Informative, practical and insightful, Sarah Caro will become the mentor of every successful PhD student. A mine of information and practical advice, this text is the definitive nuts-and-bolts manual on how to do it. A safe and sure guide' - Bryan S. Turner, Alona Evans Distinguished Visiting Professor, Wellesly College

How to Publish Your PhD is the first book to provide emerging researchers with a comprehensive and authoritative guide to publishing their research.

Drawing on nearly twenty years in the book business Sarah Caro explains in a clear and accessible way the key issues facing the would-be author. Within the context of today's fast changing world where new technologies and increasing globalization continue to impact on academia and the world of academic publishing, key issues are discussed ranging from whether publishing your PhD is always the best way to enhance your career prospects to whether you should focus on journals or books.

A wealth of practical information and advice is included on:

- choosing a publisher,

- revising your thesis,

- putting together a proposal,

- surviving the review process,

- negotiating a contract

- working with your publishers marketing department.

The book is designed to be an easy to use, one stop guide with examples, chapter summaries and further reading. It will be an invaluable resource for emerging researchers across the broadest range of the humanities and social sciences and for all those teaching and advising them, in Europe and the US.

Sarah Caro is the Economics & Finance Editor for Oxford University Press.

A safe and sure guide' - Bryan S. Turner


'The book benefits from some mini-case studies of experienced academics’ experiences. These provide a useful alternative perspective. That said, the most valuable parts of the book are those where Caro writes most clearly as a publishing industry insider'
