  Working Paper Submission Guidelines

Eligible researchers interested in publishing their work in the series must email their paper (in English) to efrem.castelnuovo@unipd.it

To guarantee the quality of the series, certain quality checks are in place. The quickest procedure is to include in the e-mail a clear reference to an international conference where the paper was previously presented. Extracts from the conference web site (or the call for paper) that certify a blind review process are strongly recommended. 

Papers never reviewed for conference presentation and/or presented only in departmental seminars can also be submitted, the editors may proceed with an internal review process. After publication as MFWP, papers can be replaced only one time if major adjustments occur.
