How to publish a working paper?
Working papers from the Basic Research Program are published in 15 different series and are released electronically in English. Series editors make all publication decisions. A working paper’s length should not surpass a total of 60,000 typographical units, including spaces. Publishing a working paper takes two weeks on average.
Submitting a working paper for publication
Step 1: The author prepares the text in English in accordance with the Basic Research Program’s technical requirements for working papers and sends this via e-mail to the series editors and to the CBR manager (Shamil Abdulaev, firstname.lastname@example.org).
Step 2: Series editors decide on the publication of a working paper and the necessity of proofreading and inform via e-mail both the author and the CBR manager.
Step 3: In the event that the series editors decide to offer proofreading, the CBR manager informs via e-mail the author regarding the timeframe for fulfilling the work. Upon completing the editing process, the CBR manager sends via e-mail the corrected text to the author for approval.
Step 4: The author sends the formatted text approved by the editors to the CBR manager via e-mail.
Step 5: The CBR manager prepares a final .pdf file of the working paper and uploads it on the Basic Research Program’s working papers webpage, the SSRN site, and in other electronic archives.
Note: If any changes are made to the text, the author sends a new version of the working paper to the CBR manager via e-mail.
