I am wondering if it would hurt me (professional creditability etc.) if I publish my dissertation on an interest / advocacy group's website.
My dissertation is in one of the areas that this group has been advocating for a long time. Obviously, there are many other contrary views to the views of this interest group. The interest group is known nationally and, in essence, functions as a political lobby.
I am employed in the same industry, so chose to study in this area from a well respected university. It was easy to identify this gap in knowledge and to address it with robust research.
There has been no issues to date but now that the dissertation is approved, I am thinking of making it more widely available, hence the above option.
