A Ph.D. by research is similar to a conventional Ph.D. but recognizes research work carried out by entrepreneurial companies and academic organizations that lead to novel and publishable results. A UNYP Ph.D. by research usually requires a minimum of three years, during which time there should be three publications, in literature approved by the University of Bolton. These publications should be in relation to the student's thesis and area of expertise and should develop the student’s knowledge of the subject. The award of this Ph.D. is based purely on these three published works and as such rewards on-going activities rather than additional work. -
