For one of my courses (subject is history related) I have to write a longish (currently 40 pages) article about a topic.

I feel a bit bad, because I worked a 3 digit number of hours and only one person (my professor) will ever read it.

In the previous courses I have either

  • Put the PDF on my university webspace, and hope Google will spill it out to someone interested in the topic.

  • Distill Wikipedia articles out of it. This has the disadvantage that it takes additional time to change the formatting etc to make the content Wikipedia compatible.

Are there any other uses?

  • Do you have a personal website, with article access? – Captain Emacs Apr 8 '16 at 15:13
  • Maybe for a blog? Magazine? – The Guy Apr 8 '16 at 15:24
  • blog is just a version of "put them online and hope someone finds them". Can you elaborate on "magazine", what kind of magazine would accept articles on highly specific topics, that don't have fancy graphics, but lots of "boring" citations and bibliography? – arved Apr 8 '16 at 15:42
  • Hunt for a journal that might be interested in publishing it? There are literally thousands of journals of varying levels of scholastic rigour. – shoover Apr 8 '16 at 16:11
