Researchers seeking recent HDR graduates with a thesis by publication

A group of Australian researchers are seeking participants for a new research study:
PhD candidates’ motivations, experiences, and opinions of the ‘Thesis by Publication’.

  • Did you complete a Thesis by Publication (also known as PhD by Publication, PhD with publications, Thesis as a series of published works, etc)?
  • Did you complete your PhD in the past 5 years at an Australian university?
  • Would you like to help smooth the path for others?

You are invited to take part in the study by completing an online questionnaire, which should take you around 15 minutes to complete. Your responses have the potential to impact the development of policies and guidelines for supporting doctoral candidates throughout the process of completing a Thesis by Publication.
