Is Your Thesis a Book: Part I
The Letter 'O'

K, the second post for this new blog (on how to get a book published, and advance your career and understanding of academic publishing after completing your PhD) comes in two parts and is about considering the publishing potential of your thesis.

In the first of what will be a regular series of tips from academic publishers, Intellect give us their top five pieces of advice on getting published.
