INFER offers members the possibility to publish their research on a whole range of economic issues. The following are INFER’s current publication opportunities:



(on any topic of interest, the copyright stays with the author)

The INFER Working Paper (WP) Series is conceived to receive papers before their submission/publication in Refereed Academic Journals. Two referees read each paper submitted for the INFER Working Paper Series and propose comments and suggestions (within 2 weeks after submission). Authors are expected to take these comments and suggestions on board and to revise their paper accordingly. The refereed papers are included in the INFER WP Series.

The INFER working paper series is published here on our website. The working paper series is also indexed on IDEAS available at following link

Claudiu Albulescu is in charge of the INFER WP Series. Your contributions are welcome and can be sent by email to .



Starting with January, 1, 2021, our previous INFER Policy Brief Series became INFER Brief Series.

An INFER brief is a concise summary of a research work on a particular economic issue. It is a short presentation of your research in a simple way, up to 2000 words, emphasizing, when possible, the policy implications of your main findings.

The INFER Brief Series is conceived to increase the visibility of your already published or unpublished researches.

You can also find the Instructions for authors here and you can download the Template of our INFER Brief here.

Papers presented at INFER workshops and conferences are eligible for consideration in INFER publications. A double blind refereeing process is put in place before any paper is accepted for publication. INFER has agreements with the journals listed above to publish special issues. Special issues in other journals may appear from time to time based on the specific workshop conference topics and the opportunity to match this topic with an appropriate journal.



  • Current Issues in Economic Research, published by INFER
  • INFER Advances in Economic Research with Edward Elgar (copyright transfer to Edward Elgar)

How does our reviewing process work?

The publications of INFER are subject to a multistage reviewing process to ensure the scientific quality of our publications. At least two independent referees review submitted papers. The result of the reviewing process and potential needs for alterations will be communicated to the author. If the result of the reviewing process is positive, the author will receive a publication contract from the relevant publication outlet. All INFER special issues will adhere strictly to the quality controls of the particular journal.

Which formal requirements have to be observed?

As is standard practice, the publication outlets listed above have specific formatting requirements that must be adhered to. For details please ask the chair of the Publications Committee, see below for contact details.



Any questions?

If you would like your research to be considered for publication with INFER please contact the Chair of the Publication Committee, Cristina Badarau, where you will be given advice and guidance on what to do next. Send an email to
