The mission of the Dissertation to Publication Workshop is to teach the art of developing a publishable manuscript based on a research. The tangible outcome of the workshop is to generate a publishable manuscript and submit to a peer-reviewed journal. Dr. Mansureh Kebritchi and the Workshop's Committee of Reviewers are proud to recognize participants from the workshop that were able to achieve this difficult task. 

Since the review process is ongoing and varried for different publications, a Listing of Publications will be updated each month to celebrate publications that were developed by workshop participants. Any new publications will be added to the listing below.
