Two years ago I finished my thesis, at the time I wasn't interested in writing papers but I have since changed my mind. The thesis has been made available online by the department. It has been cited by someone else since that time.
I would like to take a chapter of my thesis and publish it as a journal paper. And based on this question here, it seems that could work:
Can I publish parts of the Ph.D thesis as a paper in a journal?
However, I have a follow-on question. Should I be citing my own thesis if I write a paper from one of the chapters? Notes:
- I would not be adding any extra analysis
- I will be using the same figures
Extra for experts: Should I be paraphrasing all or most of the text? At the moment I have paraphrased most but perhaps one or two sentences remain unchanged because I considered them to be in the most clear and succinct form I could manage for an explanation.
