Working Papers

The 4CMR working paper series


4CMR manages its own working paper series. They are not formally peer-reviewed, however they are reviewed internally at 4CMR and by external partners. They can be preliminary results of 4CMR research projects, specialist reports for a non-academic community or derived from PhD reports, MPhil dissertations or other documents that may be early versions of submitted or published work. Readers are invited to review the papers and provide feedback to the authors to improve the papers as they move forward to publication in the scholarly literature.

Many of the 4CMR workings are also mirrored on IDEAS and REPEC.
