Working Paper Series


At the beginnings of ASSET, the member institutions had endeavoured to create an efficient means of communication within the international scientific community. Their endeavours gave rise, in February 1982, to a working paper series entitled "Southern European Economic Discussion Series" (SEEDS), which distributed the research findings of the members of ASSET to 250 Universities worldwide. More than 160 papers have been distributed to date, and of these about three quarters have found their way, after their distribution to these Universities into first-class international journals.


In 1997, Oxford University Press started publishing and distributing monographs derived from research in economics and econometrics, undertaken by various members of the ASSET network. An ASSET editorial committee used to select the volumes for publication. Given the multitude of methods researchers can promote their work over the internet nowadays, the working papers series, in its initial format, has been abandoned.


A more detailed account of the working paper series will appear on this website shortly.
