Q: Can I get an excerpt from my masters thesis published in a journal?
Dear Madam/Sir, I am a graduate student at Atlantic International University (AIU). I would like to get an excerpt from my thesis published. Could you possibly help me with any advice? Thank you.
It is possible to publish a part of or an excerpt from a thesis as a journal article. However, a thesis and a journal article are two completely different genres of writing. Hence, you will have to first modify or revise the part that you wish to publish in the form of a journal article.
