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.

Submission Guidelines

If you would like to submit a paper to be included in the series, please e-mail Linda Kelley at lhuff@illinois.edu 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:

  • List keywords at the end of the abstract
  • For economics papers - please include JEL codes
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.

If you have questions or need more information, please call 333-2330 or email lhuff@illinois.edu.
