My published work represents the beginnings of a body of research seeking to redefine sustainable architecture through mimicking ecosystems, changing goals from sustainable to regenerative development, and integrating complex social factors into sustainable architectural design.

There are therefore several places where the unpublished PhD thesis can be deposited online, if you deem the issues detailed in previous posts to be outweighed by the benefits of disseminating your research more widely. These are just a very few of those I have explored (in repsonse to for example user moorbi, introduces us to , a free German publisher). Having researched this in greater detail, I am still concerned that by posting my thesis online I may face additional challenges in publishing a monograph. This ultimately has become an issue of Open Access and I have to admit I find it encouraging that universities (in the UK at least) and EThOS and the like, are making it easier for PhD researchers to make their PhD research available online.
