Generally, in order to publish journal articles or books from your dissertation or thesis, the publisher will require significant revisions; for instance, the language may need to be condensed and modified to suit the journal's reader base, the format will need to conform to the publisher's specifications, and the peer reviewers may suggest rewriting or rethinking portions of the work. For these reasons, many publishers do not regard theses and dissertations as publications, and will publish articles and books based on those works. Review the policies of publishers you intend to work with, and speak with your Committee Chair. Embargo options are available if the publisher requires it.
