CIBR Working Papers

CIBR's Working Papers Series in Border Studies has been in existence since 2001 and welcomes papers of up to 8,000 words on any topic of international borders-related research for refereed online publication. As a true working papers series, this offers prospective authors the following advantages:

  • Publication of work in progress where authors retain copyright of their work and are to free to use it in other published formats elsewhere after online publication.
  • Dissemination of research work to a wide potential readership courtesy of general access via the web without subscription. (Recent analyses of website 'hits' and downloads indicate an impressive range of potential readers spanning all sections of the globe.)
  • Constructive feedback on work in progress by acknowledged experts mindful of the status of submissions as work in progress and oriented towards assisting the process of scholarship through the review process.

CIBR is particularly interested in submissions in areas related to the interests of CIBR members: anthropology, economics, geography, history, law, politics, and sociology.

Contributors should seek to present their material in a form that is accessible to a broad social science and humanities readership.
