Course summary

The Institute of Development Studies (IDS) transforms the knowledge, action and leadership needed for more equitable and sustainable development globally, through our world-class research, learning and teaching.

Our PhD by Published Works is designed for researchers with an existing portfolio of published work who haven’t had the chance yet to get a doctorate. The portfolio of research you submit for this PhD will be of the same quality, rigour and volume as a typical PhD. The work might take the form of refereed articles, chapters, monographs and scholarly editions, if they are available or traceable in the public domain (and not self-published). A substantial proportion of these works will be peer-reviewed, and a number will be solely authored by you. All works should ideally have been published not more than ten years before the date of submission. You’ll work with two qualified supervisors to compose an accompanying 10,000-word dissertation, summarising and explaining your work’s contribution to the development field.

We’re proud of our PhD graduates who define and solve some of the world’s most pressing global challenges in their work as: ministers in national governments and civil servants; high-level officials in development organisations such as UNDP and the World Bank; leaders of civil-society organisations including Mama Cash and Action Aid; high-profile academics at universities across the world.
