Working papers: the journal articles of tomorrow

Working papers are a preliminary version of a journal article or a scientific/technical paper, often released prior to peer review and formal publication. They are available mainly via websites of universities and research centres. This post details how and where to access working papers from Cambridge Judge and beyond.

Cambridge Judge Business School Working Papers

Cambridge Judge Business School working papers (2000-present) are available online, the majority in full-text. We have a paper collection of CJBS Working Papers (1987-2004) on the ground floor of the Business Information Centre (behind the journals display).

Working papers at other universities

We have compiled a list of some of the most popular Working Papers series in business and management. Please let us know if you would like us to add more. Alternatively you might simply want to search for a specific working paper on Google. Don’t forget, if  you cannot find a paper online we can always try to order it for you via our inter-library loan service.

Aggregated working paper collections

  • Social Science Research Network (SSRN) working papers are available via ABI Inform Complete – go to Browse, find working papers under ‘More Featured Content’, and then browse by subject or search by keywords.
  • EconPapers provide access to RePEc, the world’s largest collection of online economics working papers.
