(1) Who May Submit? The SITES Working Paper Series is open to submissions from SITES members only.

(2) What Topics Are Accepted? Any topic that fit with the mission of SITES.

(3) Can I Still Submit My Paper Elsewhere? We place no restrictions on submitting your paper simultaneously to other working paper series. However, we do not accept papers that have already been published in a journal or book.

(4) At What Stage Should I Submit My? While you are free to submit papers at any stage of the production pipeline, an ideal time might be when you initially submit the paper to a journal, conference volume or other book. Please note that we do not update, replace or delete SITES WP once they have been circulated. We thus suggest that you do not submit your paper at a very preliminary stage.

(5) How Do I Submit? You can submit your paper using the following link:

(6) Who will review my paper? A member of the editorial board will send your paper to one reviewer selected from the panel of reviewers.  

(7) What Are The Formatting Requirements? File format: We accept files in PDF format only. Paper details: Submission must include abstract (maximum length 900 characters with spaces), keywords, JEL classification. Papers should include the authors’ affiliations.

(8) How Are The Papers Circulated? SITES Working Papers are available online from the SITE website and through RePEc. Copies are also posted at SSRN. We also advertise our papers in Twitter. For this purpose, authors are invited to include a non-technical summary and/or a tweet with their submission. From time to time we also circulate graphical summaries to give more visibility to selected papers that can be illustrated graphically (with charts, maps or diagrams), or data that lend themselves to a strong visual treatment. We encourage authors to indicate whether their publication is particularly suitable for a graphical summary.
