The Economics Research Guide is a selected list of resources for starting research in economics. These resources can help you identify a topic for your reseach.

Working Papers

Working papers allow access to the latest research without the delay caused by a  lengthy publishing process of academic journals.  The field of economics has a strong tradition of working paper exchange.  Working papers are produced:

  • by researchers at universities to be later published in books, journals, or presented at conferences, and
  • by governmental bodies, NGOs, research centers and professional organizations, such as the Federal Reserve System, the World Bank, the National Bureau of Economic Research, etc.
