Is publishing our research articles mandatory before our thesis submission?
Publishing a thesis is a major milestone in a researcher’s academic career. Thesis publication may be applicable during the Post Graduate degree or the course of PhD, depending on the region (according to the convention in US or Europe). A thesis requires extensive amounts of work and reflects the years of research conducted by the student hence the content has to be elaborate and discreet. This is the reason why few universities insist on publishing a certain number of research papers before thesis publication. However, it is not mandatory rule and there are several universities which allow thesis publication before research paper publication. In fact, studies suggest a rise in the number of papers published in predatory journals due to this above-mentioned rule, as a result several universities took it off. Therefore, you need to check the university guidelines for any such requirement before thesis submission.
