ACEI Working Paper Series

ACEI is pleased to announce its new working paper collection.

As part of the ACEI commitment to improve scientific progress in the field of Cultural Economics, we are launching the ACEI Working Paper Series. The aim of this collection is to disseminate scientific advances among colleagues and to the society at large in the field of Cultural Economics. We will include the ACEI Working Paper Series at Ideas-Repec.

Working paper proposals should contain methodological advances or empirical applications about cultural economic issues. Papers must be genuinely original and unpublished. That is, not having been published or in press at any other journal.

ACEI encourages members to submit their working papers for publication to this collection.

Working paper proposals will be peer reviewed. We will try to review the proposal within 30 days. In hopes of making this practicable we will ask referees to make an up or down recommendation and to provide a very short explanation for their recommendation.
