PUBLISHING OPPORTUNITIES

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

 

1. INFER WORKING PAPERS

(on any topic of interest, the copyright stays with the author)
The INFER working paper series is published here on our website. The working paper series is also indexed on IDEAS available at following link  https://ideas.repec.org/s/inf/wpaper.html

 

2. bRIEFS

A policy brief is a concise summary of a particular issue, the policy options to deal with it, and some recommendations on the best option. It is aimed at government policymakers and others who are interested in formulating or influencing policy. If you want  to contribute to the INFFER Policy Brief Series follow the instructions here and use the template that can be availble upon request or you can download here and open it using the MsWord processor. If you are interested in submitting your contributions, please contact Cristina Badarau who is in charge of the INFER Policy Brief Series (Email: florina-cristina.badarau@u-bordeaux.fr)

 

3. JOURNALS

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.

 

4. BOOK SERIES

  • 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, Pedro Cerqueira, where you will be given advice and guidance on what to do next. Send an email to infer@infer.info or pacerq@fe.uc.pt.
