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 peer reviewed regarding form and content by the publisher (SHARE Central). However, the authors are responsible for layout and quality of their submissions. 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. Since 2020, the SHARE Working Papers are provided with a DOI for better findability.
Working Papers and Technical Reports
In July 2019, the series was divided into two categories. The Working Papers feature substantive research with SHARE data, the Technical Reports contain methodological work.
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?
To submit a Working Paper, users may send a Word file of the paper to info(at)share-project.org. Authors are asked to make sure that the SHARE data and basic literature are cited correctly and the SHARE acknowledgement is included (see here for citation requirements). The front page will be added by the publisher. The publisher reserves one’s right to reject the publication if scientific standards are neglected.
