Open Science Coffee: Experimenting with an open, continuous deployment PhD dissertation

Thursday 12 May 2022
An open OSCoffee for anyone to join!


Experimenting with an open, continuous deployment PhD dissertation

Recently I decided to host my PhD dissertation online. Not in the traditional sense of making the finished product available on an open access repository, but to release chapters as I finish early drafts and update them as I receive feedback; essentially, a (semi-)continuous deployment PhD dissertation. I will present the technical requirements involved in hosting the dissertation using the bookdown R package, GitHub actions, and Netlify. I will also talk about my decision to take this somewhat untraditional approach to publishing my dissertation in an attempt to increase transparency and try something a little different. You can take a look at the dissertation here.
