My question seems to be pretty specific since I cannot find an exact answer online.

I am working on a paper that I want to submit to a conference. I wrote my masters thesis which looked at something through two different lenses using two different datasets.

I want to use one of those angles to submit a paper to a conference, and potentially the other in the future. So my questions are:

  1. Is this okay to do?
  2. Do I need to cite my masters’ thesis, even if it is unpublished?
  3. Can I just copy parts that would apply, or do I need to paraphrase and cite different parts of the paper? For example, the analysis section of the paper, I give the background of the interviews I conducted. Can I just use this same language for the paper I want to submit to the conference?

Thank you in advance for the help!
