SHARE Working Paper Series

About the SHARE Working Paper Series
The SHARE Working Paper Series started in 2011 and collects pre-publication versions of papers or book chapters, technical and methodological reports as well as policy papers based on SHARE data. The working papers are not reviewed by the publisher (SHARE Central), layout and editing are not standardized. The publisher does not guarantee the quality of the Working Papers. Working Papers can be updated – a version number is indicated on the front page. Previous versions are available upon request.

Interactive peer-review
The SHARE Working Paper Series is not ex-ante peer-reviewed but researchers are invited to review or comment published Working Papers. These reports, provided they comply with our guidelines for friendly and collegial discourse, will be published anonymously on the website so that the authors or other researchers may answer or comment the review.  

Who can submit a Working Paper?
All registered SHARE users may submit a Working Paper if SHARE data are used.  

How to submit a Working Paper?
