ECINEQ Working Paper Series
As part of ECINEQ's commitment to improve the interaction between actors in the fields of economics inequality and related areas, we host the ECINEQ Working Paper Series. The aim is to disseminate scientific advances among colleagues and to the society at large.
The Society encourages members to submit their work for publication in ECINEQ WPS.
follow these guidelines:
Papers should be sent to Francesco Andreoli, page size A4, in PDF
The main text should start in a new page. Abstracts should be no longer
250 words. ECINEQ WP are also available at
and Research Papers in Economics (RePEc/IDEAS) http://ideas.repec.org/s/inq/inqwps.html
Please, note that once published on the Ecineq Working
Paper Series, your paper will be shared to the community via our
newsletter and the Ecineq page on Twitter and Facebook. If you do not
agree, please specify this in your submission.
