While still considered non-traditional, the popularity of the three-article dissertation is increasing. This variation on the conventional dissertation format consists of three publication-ready articles that cohesively address an overarching research problem. As much as the traditional format, it showcases students’ research and writing skills while providing an opportunity to engage in multiple research projects. This chapter describes the differences between a conventional dissertation and a three-article dissertation format, delving into the different phases of the latter. Based on their experiences with the format, the authors offer insight for faculty mentors and doctoral students interested in pursuing a three- article dissertation, including its associated challenges and advantages.
