The MPIfG Discussion Papers series comprises articles based on current projects and on contributions by visiting researchers that are generally intended for publication in scholarly journals. Internal peer review assures high standards of quality. The papers are available in postscript format.
MPIfG Working Papers report about work in progress. To make their production as quick and easy as possible, they have a simple layout and are only available online. You can read the papers on screen and send comments or questions by clicking the author’s name in the paper. The author has the copyright of his or her paper. The papers are available in HTML format.
Quality control policy: The MPIfG has set
up a Publication Committee. Manuscripts intended for either the Discussion
Paper series or the Working Paper series are submitted to the chairperson of
the Committee who typically selects one member of the Committee and one staff
member or visiting fellow outside of the committee as referees. If revisions
are requested, the same referees will be asked to review the revised version as
well. On the basis of these reviews, the ultimate decision is made jointly by
the directors of the Institute.
