Postgraduate students can publish before they complete their studies and are awarded their doctorate. Some students publish something as the soul author while others team up with their supervisor or another established academic in the same field. The type of publications PhD students have been successful with include blog posts and in other online platforms, such as The Conversation, as well as journal articles. Recently, Kirsty, a PhD student member of TASA, had an article published in Pursuit, an online Melbourne University multi-media platform, showcasing the latest research and opinion from world-leading experts.
