The MnM Centre Working Paper Series

The MnM working papers are pre-publication versions of scholarly work usually intended for publication as journal articles or book chapters at a later date. The papers are intended to provide open access to research that contributes to the intellectual aims of the MnM Centre.

The centre welcomes submissions of approximately 3000–5000 words in any widely accepted referencing style from scholars working in any relevant field across the humanities and social sciences. Postgraduate students may also submit work subject to editorial guidance from MnM research staff.

Papers are reviewed as they arrive with the understanding that they are works in progress. Copyright remains with the author(s) who retain(s) the right to publish the paper in full or in part elsewhere. We do, however, request that when authors publish elsewhere they acknowledge publication of an earlier version in the MnM Working Paper Series.

If you wish to remove a publication from the site (e.g. when it is published elsewhere) you may submit full publication details to appear in place of your working paper. Comments on a working paper, however, should be directed to its author.

Note: Shorter pieces of approximately 1000–2000 words may be accepted for our MnM Commentaries.
