HOW TO PUBLISH YOUR DISSERTATION
BECOME AN EXPERT IN YOUR FIELD
The Social Responsibility of the Doctoral Scholar
When students in higher education pursue a doctoral degree, much time and effort is invested in learning doctoral research techniques, methods and design strategies, as well as learning to write like a scholar. Sometimes this journey may take as much as 7 years! Often, when the degree is completed, the research is published by the respective university, where the new doctor will purchase a leather bound copy that sits on their coffee table as proof of their accomplishment (in addition to the diploma of course). Our goal as part of the Refractive Thinker doctoral community is to get this research off the coffee table and into the hands of those who can benefit from the results. The goal isn’t to decorate the coffee table; the goal is to become an ambassador of change to add one’s expertise to the growing body of knowledge. The world is in desperate need of answers to many of the business and academic problems researched within academia.
If you hold a doctorate degree, you are invited to publish your research from your dissertation (5 Chapter Model), doctoral study (3 Section Model) or PhD study. Come join doctoral scholars from around the globe as part of the 12 time award winning doctoral anthology, The Refractive Thinker® series.
Our scholars are from The University of Baltimore, Walden University, University of Phoenix, Capella University, and The London School of Economics. More than 85 unique doctoral scholars have joined with us to add their scholarly research to our award winning series. Will you be the next scholar to contribute to our award wining series?
