Publishing The responsibility for editing UAB theses and dissertations resides with the student and the individual departments and programs. Signatures of committee members and program directors on the approval forms indicate their assurance that they have examined the document and have found that it is of professional quality from all standpoints, including writing quality, technical correctness, and professional competency, and that the document conforms to acceptable standards of scholarly presentation. Because members of your committee read your manuscript carefully, sometimes numerous times, you may feel that it will automatically be sufficiently edited.
For a masters degree dissertation there is no formal expectation that you will publish, but one of the indicators of the best work at this level is that it is seen as being of publishable quality.
Where a distinction award is made this will usually indicate that your dissertation has work in it that should be published. For a Doctorate the standard required to pass is that your work and findings are of publishable quality, so you will find that there is some expectation from your university that you will try to publish some or all of your work.

Preparing your manuscript for submission. Publishing your dissertation By Beth Azar Although finishing your dissertation may be the final hurdle to completing your doctorate, getting it published may be an important step toward your career as .
Career In Academia If you are planning to progress from the postgraduate course to a career as an academic or as a researcher then having some work published from your research is almost essential.
In some universities you are not allowed to publish work from your thesis or dissertation until after it has been submitted for examination for your degree.
This means that you cannot publish as you go along. In other universities there is more flexibility on this, and providing you do not publish the final version of any sections of your work before you are examined then there is not a problem.
You need to check this very carefully with your tutor before deciding whether to publish any of your findings.
This enables you to meet and mix with academics and other researchers in your field and to listen to their ideas. It may also be possible for you to present papers on your developing ideas from your research and get some views and ideas from others.
Care needs to be taken with this for the same reasons that publishing may be a problem as you go along. But discuss this with your tutor to see if it is possible or a sensible idea.
Publishing Your Thesis After you have finished, though, you will be encouraged to publish your thesis. In many disciplines there is a tradition of post-Doctoral studies, when students spend time after their PhD to prepare papers from their research and take their research on a little further.
However, this is not easy for masters students, unless they progress to a Doctorate, and it is also not easy for those who leave academic life after their postgraduate studies and enter a different career. Whatever your circumstances, though, you should consider carefully trying to get one or more papers from your work published.
This will raise the profile for your work, which will then be more easily accessible than your thesis. Strictly Confidential One final point to consider in all this is that you may not wish your work to be published either because it contains controversial ideas or because it contains findings that are of commercial value.
Universities are sensitive to both these problems, and all have systems for ensuring your work stays confidential if necessary — your tutor will be able to provide advice on this. If your ideas are of commercial value then the university will be able to provide expert advice on such things as registering patents or setting up a company to exploit the discovery.
