Publishing a doctoral thesis – cumulative doctorate or monograph?
Often doctoral candidates are faced with the question of whether to publish cumulatively or whether it makes more sense to publish as a monograph.
Moreover, is it possible to switch from a cumulative doctorate to a monograph? Writing your dissertation requires a lot – time, patience, planning and heart and soul. Using scientific methods, you will work on and present problems independently. In doing so, your research results make a significant contribution to science, which deserves an appropriate placement in the world of knowledge
The cumulative dissertation
comprises several individual works – i.e. several scientific publications. Especially in empirical research, experiments and trials, this doctoral variant is often used. Especially when the time frame is limited, so that continuous work on the dissertation over a longer period is not possible. Monographic dissertations
are usually published in print or in the form of an electronic publication. Not infrequently, however, there is a concern that the research results published in whole or in part will receive little attention and that a parallel journal article must be produced.
By publishing the monograph
in a scientific publishing house, however, you can achieve the greatest visibility on the global scientific terrain and have your partial results published as a complete work – your bundled knowledge
is presented in one publication. By means of targeted marketing, your dissertation will achieve a great reputation
and will be found and available worldwide. Moreover, you will be granted the opportunity to obtain your doctorate in a timely manner.
When publishing in journals, on the other hand, only partial articles of the thesis are published in specialist journals and this process is costly and takes years. There is also the question of whether your thesis will be accepted at all. Unfortunately, the publication of the cumulative dissertation often provides for this path, but it would be fatal to let your scientific findings fall into oblivion.
We – as an international specialist publisher – are keen to establish your years of work and significant research on the scientific terrain in a holistic, large-scale and visible manner.Your work deserves more than a brief appearance.
