The Working Paper Series welcomes submissions from academic staff, visiting fellows, and post-graduate students. PhD students wishing to publish their paper in the Series are required to have an email of support from their supervisor. We encourage supervisors and exam boards to nominate especially strong MSc dissertations (e.g., those receiving Departmental prizes) for an invitation to publish in the Series.
We encourage all authors to ensure that pre-publishing their research as a working paper will not jeopardize their chances of publishing in peer-review journals. This varies across disciplines and journals; the Social Policy Working Paper Series is not responsible for making these checks
Submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and must include:
- an abstract of 100-300 words that describes the research question, methods, and findings; we encourage abstracts to be written in a manner that is easily understood by non-experts.
- 3 -6 keywords for indexing
- Author contact details and short biography.
Should you have any questions regarding the submission process or suitability of a potential paper, please contact a member of the editorial board.
