The Economics Working Paper Series is a publishing program of the Economics Discipline in the School of Economics and Information Systems to present work-in-progress by staff, visitors and students to a wider academic audience. Papers submitted to the Series have undergone a process of peer review. Papers published prior to 1998 are available in printed form and are currently being digitized. Papers from 1998 onwards are also available online in PDF format from the School site here as well as from Research Papers in Economics (RePEc) and EconPapers.

The ISSN for the Working Paper Series is 1321-9774 and the co-editors are Associate Professor Peter Siminski and Dr Kankesu Jayanthkurmaran.
