How to Submit or Find an SAIC Thesis or Grad Project

A Note About Publishing

How can I publish my thesis?

Writers and artists are encouraged to pursue publication opportunities that you yourself initiate with presses, journals, or sites you recognize and admire. SAIC librarians are available to help you research publishers and publishing. Email us at for an appointment.

Please be wary of any publisher who sends unsolicited offers to publish your thesis. Every year a number of our graduates report being approached by "publishers" eagerly seeking unevaluated theses to publish. Before you sign away any (or all) of your rights or pay fees, read their contract carefully. See links below for more information.
