  • No, you cannot publish your thesis here. Please see the help center for more information about this site. – JeffE Aug 6 '17 at 22:06

This is a question-and-answer site, not a publishing platform.

If you want to publish your master’s thesis, the best way is to convert it to a proper journal article (or conference paper, if that is a thing in your field). Your supervisor is probably the best person to advise you on this.

  • Or, especially in the humanities, publish it as a book. If you just put it on the web, you will be in the company of all the kooks who do that, too. – GEdgar Aug 6 '17 at 12:51

In addition to the amazing answer by @Wrzlprmft, I have the following to make you aware of few things:

Many publishers, mostly 'unknown' and 'business oriented' ones do take advantage of the weak situations of the Graduate students by claiming that they would publish the whole thesis as a book.

One such example is Lambert Academic Publishing (LAP) whose status to be called as a legit publisher is highly questionable. Even I was about to get trapped by them. Have a look at the following questions:

Another example is OmniScriptum. Read the blog here.

Be careful, it is your hard work produced as a thesis. You might lose copyright, ownership, and then left with nothing. Look how much they are earning from your hard work (a sample e-shopping site).

If you want slightly faster publication (i.e. the time to get published), target high tier conferences in your field. (I am assuming here that you belong to Engineering fields)
