Federation Business School

Working paper series

The major aim of this online series is to publish research-in-progress being conducted by members of our School for the purpose of encouraging a supportive and productive research culture. This series is designed to assist the authors to refine their ideas, methods and analysis through the widest possible dissemination of the papers. All published papers will be available from the School's research website and thus can be accessed through website browsers. All papers will have a statement encouraging readers of these papers to contact the authors with comments and suggestions for further research.

All submitted papers will be reviewed and edited to ensure an acceptable academic standard is met in the presentation, analysis and referencing of the work. Titles and keywords will be provided on the working paper series listing. An abstract and Harvard-style referencing is required with all submissions.

Frequency of submissions

Four times a year there will be a call for papers to be submitted. After the editorial process and necessary revisions, the papers will be placed on the research website in an archival format.
