Working Paper Submission Guidelines
What is a Working Paper?
Working papers - sometimes called "discussion papers" - are manuscripts that have not been
accepted for publication. The paper may be a draft that you would like to send to colleagues
in your field in order to solicit comments or feedback, or it may be a paper that you have
presented or plan to present at a conference or seminar, or one that you have submitted for
publication to a journal but has not (yet) been accepted.
Now Available on the Web
The working papers in their entirety are now available in PDF format on our website for recent years.
If you would like to submit a paper to be included in the series, please e-mail Linda Kelley at
email@example.com and attach your manuscript - it will be converted
to a PDF file and posted on the web, with your approval.
In order to help us describe your
paper and to make it easier for readers to find papers in their areas of interest on the website,
the following mandatory fields are now required:
The titles and abstracts of all the working papers submitted in the last several years are
available on our website. Since we no longer keep extra copies of Working Papers on hand,
I will forward any requests for your paper(s) to the author.
- List keywords at the end of the abstract
- For economics papers - please include JEL codes
