Suppose I write a paper that contains mostly results that I previously published in my M.Sc. or Ph.D. thesis. The paper contains another author that is not related to the thesis (not the supervisor), who contributed some other results. How should I relate to the thesis when writing the paper?
- Should I ignore it altogether since the thesis is not formally considered a publication?
- Should I cite this as a "previous work"? It is not exactly previous work - it is the current work.
- Maybe I am not allowed at all to include these results, since it is considered re-publication of something that already appeared?
(domain: theoretical computer science).
EDIT: I am interested in two cases:
- Case 1: the submission is not anonyomous, so I can mention explicitly that it is my thesis.
- Case 2: the submission is anonymous, so I am not allowed to mention that is my thesis..
