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.
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?
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.
