This book provides an idea of what writing a thesis by publication entails: what its purpose is, what the various expectations might be for this emerging genre, and what the challenges might be in writing one. Rather than focusing on how to write the individual articles, however, the book focuses on putting together the thesis as a whole: how to think of the articles as individual pieces in a larger picture, and how to write the narrative as an argument for how it all comes together to form a doctorate. It also focuses on the social sciences and humanities, where the monograph still dominates and the thesis by publication is an ‘emerging genre’ that has not yet found its form. A thesis by publication differs from a monograph because it is made of several pieces — individual publications that are written as stand-alone works — that are put together into a whole.
