Alfred Deakin Research Institute

Working Paper Series

The Alfred Deakin Research Institute Working Paper series is designed to bring the research of the Institute to as wide an audience as possible and to promote discussion among researchers, academics and practitioners both nationally and internationally on issues of importance.

The working papers are selected with the following criteria in mind:

  1. To share knowledge, experience and preliminary findings from research projects;
  2. To provide an outlet for research and discussion papers (some of which have a policy focus);
  3. To give ready access to previews of papers destined for publication in academic journals, edited collections, or research monographs; and
  4. To present this work in a form that is scholarly, well written and which has a clear sense of particular purpose and context.
