Working papers

Coordination: Ana Luísa Micaelo, Catarina Frois, Joana Lucas


With the objective of disseminate CRIA’s research fellows work, and to encourage the sharing and discussion of data at an early stage of research, CRIA as implemented a line of Working Papers. These papers will only be available online, in CRIA’s site, and of open access to the public in general. The manuscripts published may be in the format of finalized papers, research notes, written script of oral communications presented in scientific meeting, or others. All of which will have to have enough scientific quality to be accepted for publication.

Although, CRIA´s Working Papers are not peer reviewed papers, in the classic sense of the term, these are nevertheless academic and scientific papers that may be cited as any other publication. To guarantee its academic and scientific standards all texts received texts will be appreciated by the WP coordinators, and the authors informed of the final decision.
