Research Paper Series

The Research Paper Series consists of two series of papers written by associates of the Centre and their colleagues at AIS St Helens and other institutions. The first series is of Occasional Papers, which are intended to be finished pieces of work. The second series is of Working Papers, which are pieces of research work that are work in progress. The content of the papers are the views of the authors rather than the views of the centre and the centre regards the material in them to be fully owned by the authors.

All papers are edited by members of the Centre’s editorial board consisting of:
Dr Ershad Ali
Professor Srikanta Chatterjee
Dr Malcolm Abbott
Dr Mike Roberts
Professor Chris Doucouliagos (Deakin University Australia)
Dr Carol Griffiths

As this is an on-going series, papers / articles / comments and suggestions are welcome from AIS St Helens and the wider academic community.
