Which Discussion Papers are available online, and how do I obtain papers that are not?
Most published Discussion Papers are available to download from www.cepr.org. There are a few gaps in the early years of the sequence as these papers were not originally available in digital versions and were digitised and uploaded from an office archive that was missing some papers. If you require a specific paper that is not available in digital form, we will endeavour to obtain a copy and send you a scan. Please contact [email protected].
Are Discussion Papers still available in printed form?
No, we are no longer able to provide printed copies of Discussion Papers. Your print shop should be able to print them for you from the pdf file if required.
