Paper publication

Greetings.

My institution require that we should publish our research work before defending it. Is it a good practice for a work that has not been defended and criticized properly to be published before defense?  If it is possible, I really would appreciate links to good journals I can send my work for publication. My area of specialization is Pharmacology and therapeutics, and my research topic is on Antihypertensive effect of a plant extract.

From a worried student

Thanks

Hello! How are you?

Here in Brazil, it is normal to publish a paper about your dissertation or these in a good scientific periodic. It depends on your program.
It is usually a paper on the subject of study. Despite this publication of the article, the larger work (dissertation or these) is presented later and defended.
