ECINEQ Working Paper Series

As part of ECINEQ's commitment to improve the interaction between actors in the fields of economics inequality and related areas, we host the ECINEQ Working Paper Series. The aim is to disseminate scientific advances among colleagues and to the society at large.

 

The Society encourages members to submit their work for publication in ECINEQ WPS.

 

Please follow these guidelines: Papers should be sent to Francesco Andreoli, page size A4, in PDF format. The main text should start in a new page. Abstracts should be no longer than 250 words. ECINEQ WP are also available at EconPapers: http://econpapers.repec.org/paper/inqinqwps/ and Research Papers in Economics (RePEc/IDEAS) http://ideas.repec.org/s/inq/inqwps.html
