Discussion Paper Series - Submit a paper

Discussion Paper Series - Submission guidelines

The Discussion Paper Series is open to members of the MRG group, affiliates and fellows. Papers relevant to macroeconomics research should be submitted to Satoshi Tanaka. Accepted papers will be made available for download in PDF format from the MRG site and RePEc.

  1. Submissions should demonstrate a strong potential for publication, but have not yet been accepted for publication elsewhere.
  2. Papers should be submitted as a plain, non-branded PDF document. MRG staff will add a branded cover letter to this submission.
    It is the author’s responsibility to ensure that the references and citations are complete and accurate.
  3. Include a cover page with the title of the paper, author name(s), affiliation(s), biographical note(s), and complete contact information.
  4. An abstract suitable for MRG’s publicity materials and reports should be included as well as relevant keywords.
  5. Inquiries and submissions should be directed to Satoshi Tanaka.

Format and distribution

Discussion papers will be made available for download in PDF format from the MRG site unless the author specifically requests that the paper not be made available in electronic format.

MRG will attach a cover sheet indicating that discussion papers are unpublished manuscripts and should not be cited without the author's permission.

If your discussion paper is subsequently published, authors will be given the option to remove the paper from the series and have it replaced with a detailed citation for the published version.

Please notify MRG when your paper has been accepted.
