PEP working papers are now available as an Economics Research Centers Papers Series within the Economics Research Network (ERN) on SSRN. Subscribers to the Partnership for Economic Policy Working Paper Series will receive email announcements of newly published papers in the series.
The PEP Working Paper Series already boasts over 200 papers discussing a broad range of issues related to poverty reduction and sustainable development. Topics include, but are not limited to, agriculture and food security, women's and youth economic empowerment, climate change, social protection, and financial inclusion.
Two distinguishing characteristics of the PEP Working Paper Series are that most papers are authored by researchers living and working in the countries they study; and almost all are externally reviewed before publication.
The aim of SSRN is to facilitate the distribution of and access to research at the lowest possible cost. SSRN hosts research paper series (RPS) for academic and other research organizations. SSRN's searchable library contains abstracts, full bibliographic data, and author contact information for more than 809,200 papers, more than 384,500 authors, and full text for more than 686,000 papers. Access to working papers, including the Partnership for Economic Policy Working Paper Series, is free.
