Mizzi, Robert C.

This paper dives into the complicated work of publishing while working on a doctoral dissertation. Although the author recognizes the dissertation as being a capstone synthesis of a multi-year endeavor, there can be some educational and social benefits to engaging with a publication process. A few key benefits include, but are not limited to, scholarly feedback on ideas, a strengthened writing portfolio and skills, a better position to receive awards, and an expansion of networking opportunities. The author reaffirms existing literature that points out that through publishing work, the doctoral identity shifts from that of being a student to becoming a scholar.
