Local Working Papers or Discussion Papers (U Minnesota)
  • University of Minnesota's AgEcon Search--Research in Agricultural Economics
    AgEcon Search: Research in Agricultural and Applied Economics is a World Wide Web site developed and maintained at the University of Minnesota by Magrath Library and the Department of Applied Economics.
    AgEcon Search collects, indexes, and electronically distributes full text copies of scholarly research in the broadly defined field of agricultural economics including sub disciplines such as agribusiness, food supply, natural resource economics, environmental economics, policy issues, agricultural trade, and economic development. AgEcon Search will serve as the permanent archive for this literature and encourages authors and organizations to use this electronic library as the storehouse for additional appropriate scholarly electronic works.
Social Science Research Network
Social Science Research Network (SSRN) is devoted to the rapid worldwide dissemination of social science research and is composed of a number of specialized research networks in each of the social sciences. We have received several excellence awards for our web site.
Each of SSRN's networks encourages the early distribution of research results by publishing Submitted abstracts and by soliciting abstracts of top quality research papers around the world. We now have hundreds of journals, publishers, and institutions in Partners in Publishing that provide working papers for distribution through SSRN's eLibrary and abstracts for publication in SSRN's electronic journals.
The SSRN eLibrary consists of two parts: an Abstract Database containing abstracts on over 76,100 scholarly working papers and forthcoming papers and an Electronic Paper Collection currently containing over 52,000 downloadable full text documents in Adobe Acrobat pdf format. The eLibrary also includes the research papers of a number of Fee Based Partner Publications.

National Bureau of Economic Research. Working Papers
The NBER is the nation's leading nonprofit economic research organization. Twelve of the 31 American Nobel Prize winners in Economics and three of the past Chairmen of the President's Council of Economic Advisers have been researchers at the NBER. The more than 600 professors of economics and business now teaching at universities around the country who are NBER researchers are the leading scholars in their fields. These Bureau associates concentrate on four types of empirical research: developing new statistical measurements, estimating quantitative models of economic behavior, assessing the effects of public policies on the U.S. economy, and projecting the effects of alternative policy proposals.

CEPR Discussion Papers Authentication Required
The The Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR) network consists of over 750 Research Fellows and Affiliates based in over 237 different institutions in 28 countries (90% in the European Union). Because it draws on such a large network of researchers, CEPR is able to produce a wide range of research that reflects a broad spectrum of individual viewpoints and perspectives. The mission of the Centre is to to promote research excellence and policy relevance in European economics. The Centre has made contributions to a wide range of European policy issues for decades. The Centre disseminates its research through the CEPR Discussion Paper Series. It publishes almost 700 papers annually. Over 3000 Discussion Paper Abstracts are currently available online and all Discussion Papers published since the beginning of 1999 are available.

RepEc
RePEc (Research Papers in Economics) is a collaborative effort of over 100 volunteers in 44 countries to enhance the dissemination of research in economics. The heart of the project is a decentralized database of working papers, journal articles and software components. All RePEc material is freely available.
You may add your own materials to RePEc through a department or institutional archive -- all institutions are welcome to join and contribute their materials by establishing and maintaining their own RePEc archive. If your institution does not yet participate in RePEc, you may submit your own papers to EconWPA (the Economics Working Paper Archive), and they will automatically be included in RePEc. RePEc does not support personal archives (only institutional archives).
Please note that RePEc does not contain full-text journal articles; RePEc services provide links to many full text articles, but you may need a personal or institutional subscription to follow those links. If a working paper or journal article is not indicated as "downloadable", please contact the author or publisher for assistance.
