I need advice please. I received a high mark on my dissertation and my tutor wants me to publish. I have to options to publish on my own with guidance or to publish with them as co author. I’m not sure what to do. I feel like I want to publish on my own but I feel selfish, and it limits my journal selection. Yet if I publish with my tutor as co author I may recieve more options. Any advice thoughts and opinions would be great

Publishing with your tutor will give you more options and a greater likelihood of the article actually seeing the light of day.

If you do that, make sure that the authors are listed as "Yourname and Tutorname" rather than the other way around. My postgraduate dissertation was published and as well as my tutor's name there was also the name of a previous student whose work I had expanded into a new area. By academic convention the article was therefore cited as "Myname et al". 😁

So congrats on the disso.
I would publish as co-author (you can still be the lead author and list your name first...) theres no real negative to having multiple authors, I would say most journal papers in academia have multiple authors (often 3,4,5+ authors is common).

Your Supervisor obviously wants their name on the paper, and its common place for supervisors to be co-authors.

I would say its better to have more authors and get published in as best a journal as possible, you want the research to be read after all...
