The NBER Working Paper Series at 20,000 - Joshua Gans

  1. 1. Peer Review, Publication and the Diffusion of Economic Knowledge Joshua Gans University of Toronto WP@20000, July 2014
  2. 2. Publication and Peer Review Lags • Working papers appear years before published work • Working papers are not peer reviewed • Almost: some are discussed at conferences • Does publication mean anything? • With 20,000 working papers and growing, what identifiers should be on NBER ‘published’ work?
  3. 3. Web Repository Options • Open access • Comments and Conference Discussions • Dataset links • Versions • Links to published works • Links to press and summaries • Citations • Should the NBER provide peer review (that is then submitted to journals)?
