PhD by Publication

Do you want to include chapters written for publication in your thesis?

We are pleased to announce that the University’s regulations have changed and now allow PhD and MD students to include chapters written for publication in their thesis. The chapters can be at any stage of the publication lifecycle from written in publication format to published.

You will need the approval of your supervisory team to use this model and we encourage you to discuss it with your supervisors if it interests you.  

To help you learn more about the requirements and to prepare a thesis using this model, we encourage you to consult this guidance document. The guidance covers the regulatory requirements, advice on writing publications, and assistance on writing a thesis that incorporates publications.
