The Institute's longstanding, peer-reviewed Working Paper Series provides a vehicle for faculty fellows, visiting fellows, and guest scholars to rapidly disseminate their research. They are free to subsequently publish the work in books or journals. The Institute publishes about 10 papers a year in their original languages, with abstracts in English and Spanish or Portuguese. Most papers are available for download free of charge. Faculty Fellow Guillermo Trejo serves as series editor.

For questions regarding the series, please contact Editorial Manager Elizabeth Rankin.
