LACEA's Working Papers Series

LACEA has decided to create its own Working Paper Series (LACEA.WPS) and publish high quality (but not yet peer-reviewed) research produced by a selected group of academics, with the main objetive to create goodwill which contributes to the rapid dissemination and discussion of research, which in turn enhances the name of the institution and widens its membership. LACEA's Associates, who were previously selected by the Executive Committee, have the exclusive right to publish their research in LACEA.WPS without any further a priori filter (although subject to the editorial guidelines and a posteriori revision if the case arises).
