Submit a working paper
The CRDCN Working Paper series provides an outlet for research papers based on data analyses carried out in a research data centre. There is no peer review, but papers will be checked to ensure that the author is an RDC researcher and the paper was written using output generated in an RDC.
Peer-reviewed publications vary in their policy towards research that has been posted on a working paper website. Before submitting a paper, authors should check the policy of the journal to which they plan to send their article for publication.
Papers must be submitted in Microsoft Word or PDF. We will not edit the papers, so authors should be sure that the paper, including all tables and figures, is formatted as they wish it to be. They must not be password-protected, so that we can insert the requisite cover page.
Timeframe for posting
Please allow us 6-8 weeks to review your submission and post it on the website. We will contact you if there are any issues that stand in the way of its posting.
