Thesis to Book

Turn your MA or PhD Research Into a Best-Selling Book

  Enroll in Course

PhDs and MAs have interesting research that the public needs to know about. That is why I have designed these course to help academics use their knowledge to write best-selling books and publish them on Amazon. I’ve used these exact steps to start a publishing company while still a PhD student that has generated over six figures of income.

I believe there is much more we can do with our research than simply producing the thesis itself. In this course, I’ll show you how to turn your MA or PhD thesis into a popular book.

Your Instructor


Scott Rank, PhD
Scott Rank, PhD

Scott Rank is the lead instructor at the Scholarpreneur Academy. He is a historian of the Ottoman Empire and modern Turkey. He received his PhD in 2015.

Beyond research and teaching, Scott does plenty of non-academic work. He is a publisher of popular history, a podcaster, an online instructor, and an entrepreneur. Before going down the academic route he worked as a journalist in Istanbul and reported on human rights issues.

After starting a successful online publishing business while doing his doctoral research (and while raising two daughters with his wife Melissa), he is focusing on what he loves most: helping academics find ways to connect their knowledge with people who want to learn outside of the walls of a university.

This mission comes from his own experiments in using his doctorate outside of academia. In the middle of his PhD program he started self publishing history ebooks. Since then he has written 12. He still writes them but also teaches academics how to turn their research into a popular book, self-publish it, and market it.

Scott hosts two podcasts. The first is History in Five Minutes, which to date has over 130 episodes and 1.5 million downloads. The second is the Scholarpreneur Podcast, where he features interviews with academics who are turning their MAs and PhDs into businesses.

Lastly, Scott helps MAs and PhDs finish their thesis. He speaks at universities, telling grad students how they can go from writer’s block to finishing their MA thesis in three months or their PhD thesis in six, even if they haven’t finished their research. If you would like to see a sample of Scott speaking and have him at your university,

Scott is currently a postdoc in Istanbul and working on publishing his dissertation.
