Thank you, Hilary, you asked my question :)
Liam Lewis

If you have arrived to this session after we started, we will have an open Q&A session after the chairs have asked questions to our speakers. Feel free to write questions here and we will try to cover as many as possible.
Mavis Ho
55:24
Thanks Liam, I would like to ask, when submitting the proposal, do editors prefer a revised sample chapter or just the whole manuscript of the thesis?
McAteer, Catherine
55:40
I would add about OA publishing that increasingly grant providers are mandating that outputs are produced in this format - which is how I ended up publishing my own monograph in OA (stipulated by the ERC)
Kate Mackenzie
57:30
1. My research is interdisciplinary (literature and law). My supervisors and funders are very supportive of this, but academic structures still seem pretty compartmentalised. How open to interdisciplinary work would you say publishing is? 2. Several speakers have mentioned journal articles as an alternative to a book. What of edited volumes?
Caroline D. Laurent
58:19
Thank you Laurel for speaking about time - I had a question if the author needs an extension on what they had envision in the proposal. Is that frown upon?
Daniela K Ford
01:00:42
I am thinking of using my handouts from teaching as a basis to write a text book which my students can then use as the text book for my module. However, my content is mostly time-sensitive so if it may take up to 18 months/2 years to publish a book most of my content would probably be out-of-date. Would this be a case of trying to publish an e-book? Can e-books be published more quickly?
Emma Kavanagh
01:02:44
Thank you so much for this informative session from a lurking musicologist (with broader interests in cultural history and French Studies too)! I have a quick question which builds a bit on Mavis’s question: I gather that for ECRs it’s expected that more of the book should be “done” at the time when you’re approaching a publisher. Is this the case, and if so, how much would be the ideal amount?
Chris Kap
01:03:29
Do you have any tips on how to see your thesis from a new perspective when rewriting it for publication? It is often quite difficult to read your thesis as the 'reader' and not from the author's point of view
Zhanghui Yang
01:07:33
As to comparative literature, which press is more suitable for publishing? Thank you.
Kate Mackenzie
01:13:00
Thank you to all panellists, including for the caution re edited volumes.
Sara Al Tubuly
01:17:41
If we publish a thesis chapter into journal article, will this be considered a self plagiarism?
James Illingworth
01:20:16
Any advice on negotiating the issue of PhD funders requiring theses to be made freely available online within 12 months of submission when proposing a monograph based on a thesis (albeit transformed)?
Sheela Mahadevan
01:22:30
If a manuscript receives positive peer reviews and all reviewers recommend publication, is there still a possibility of rejection? Thank you.
