SPP 1448 Working Paper Series

The research programme Adaptation and Creativity in Africa publishes online working papers in PDF format to be downloaded from its website. The editors are Ulf Engel and Richard Rottenburg. The manuscripts should have a length of approximately 8000 words and should be submitted to the editors together with a review written by a colleague from within the author’s project. The editors will assess and decide if a further written peer review from within the research programme is necessary.

The first working papers are published in February 2013. All participants of the research programme are invited to publish their findings first as SPP working papers. Since working papers have no ISBN numbers the subsequent publication as journal article or chapter of an edited volume is no problem. In fact, the publication of a manuscript research paper as working paper is a good and established way of systematically improving the paper by collecting different reactions and then rewriting it for a journal.
