C&M working papers are meant to share work in progress in a timely way before formal publication. Authors bear full responsibility for the content of their contribution, as online commentators bear full responsibility for the content of their commentaries. All rights reserved.
Submissions. All papers are subject to review by either a member of the Editorial Board or an external reviewer. Authors interested in including their work in the C&M Series should send their paper to wp[at]concepts-methods.org. They may also seek initial endorsement by one editorial board member.
