About Working Papers

About CAS Working Papers

The CAS is constantly striving to improve the accessibility of research for the members and improve avenues for feedback to researchers. To help meet these objectives, this section of the CAS Web Site has been established for Working Papers.

  • Working Papers are papers that reflect an idea or concept that is still being developed and for which the author is inviting discussion. As such, a Working Paper might be considered a work in progress.
  • The Working Paper section of the Web Site will allow authors to more quickly disseminate new ideas than would be possible with a printed publication.
  • Discussions of Working Papers are encouraged and will be posted on the Web Site along with the papers. With feedback on the paper, authors can modify their work and prepare the paper for submission to a publication.
  • Both CAS members and non-members are invited to submit Working Papers.

Additional details, including instructions for submitting papers, can be found in our list of Frequently Asked Questions.
