Although I sympathize with the cause of this initiative of self-publishing,
I nevertheless have an intriguing question, call it itching feet!

A thesis being a formal document eventually officiated by the respective
defence jury, what would the opinion of jurers be when faced with a
manuscript already in public domain. I can think of two issues, one in
relation to novelty aspect and the other being officiation of the document.
Novelty aspect relate to likely case that may come up if parts of the
made-public thesis work gets reworked and published by others before the
thesis is finally complete. In such a case, novelty aspect of the thesis
will become questionable. The officiation aspect obviously relates to
recognition of the "thesis" nature of the writeup by a jury.

Am I on the wrong foot here?

PS: A side issue: in some traditional universities here in Turkey I hear
that the jury requires the thesis work to be not-published (made public)
before the jury defence meeting; otherwise rejecting the thesis as being
"not fresh/original" :)
