Berghahn BooksThesis can be deposited and remain publicly available. We require authors to state that their work has not been previously published in any way, but we are not concerned about the deposit or otherwise of the original PhD thesis as we require the work to be substantially worked in order to be publishable as one of our books and do not consider online availability of a thesis in an institutional repository to be an equivalent publication.09/2010Data collected by WRAP team at Warwick https://warwick.ac.uk/services/library/staff/warwick-research-publications/thesis-deposits/thesis-publication/

Equinox Publishing Ltd.Thesis must not have been deposited. We require authors to state that their work has not been previously published in any way, and this means that they must not have deposited their work online in any publicly accessible way. Any author who has put their thesis online could not get a book based on their PhD research published through us.09/2010Data collected by WRAP team at Warwick https://warwick.ac.uk/services/library/staff/warwick-research-publications/thesis-deposits/thesis-publication/

MIT PressThesis can have been deposited but must not remain on public access. We require authors to state that their work has not been previously published in any way, but if it has been previously deposited online and made publicly accessible this would not jeopardise chances of publication. We would be likely to request a permanent take-down at the time that we accept the title for publication as one of our books.09/2010Data collected by WRAP team at Warwick https://warwick.ac.uk/services/library/staff/warwick-research-publications/thesis-deposits/thesis-publication/

Oxford University PressNo specific guidelines are given with reference to PhD theses. However, the history section ‘will not usually consider for publication any book held in its entirety or in significant part in an institutional or commercial electronic depository.’ Contact individual journals or editors to check their policy.?Data taken from https://www.sheffield.ac.uk/library/openaccess/theses

Palgrave MacmillanAccepts proposals based on theses made available in online repositories, but these must be significantly revised. There is a general expectation that theses should have an embargo lasting 2 years after publication of the monograph. This may vary, depending on how different the monograph is from the original thesis. www.palgrave.com/gb/why-publish/early-career-researcher-hub. ?Data taken from https://www.sheffield.ac.uk/library/openaccess/theses

When submitting a proposal, it must be made clear if the thesis is in a repository and when it will be publicly available.Data taken from https://www.sheffield.ac.uk/library/openaccess/theses
