The Working Papers Series


The Working Papers constitute work in progress publications. They are published to bring about discussion and contribute to the advancement of knowledge. They represent work from Faculty staff and PhD students across a wide range of research areas, demonstrating both the depth and breadth of research being undertaken at the Faculty.  We also offer the opportunity for our Masters students who have won the best thesis award to publish an abridged version of their thesis with us.

Papers have been internally reviewed but have not been through an external reviewing process.  Comments are invited at the discretion of the author and are moderated.

Recent copies of the Working Paper Series are available online. To view, download or print a paper (in .pdf) just click on the download link. Please note all papers are subject to copyright which resides with the author(s).
