WORKING PAPER SERIES LAUNCHED

Linfield CollegeTwo Linfield College groups – the Department of Business and the Department of Economics – have launched a new Working Paper Series aimed at cultivating and communicating ideas.

The interdepartmental publication, intended to showcase and stimulate faculty research, is a collection of working papers that may include teaching notes, preliminary research findings or drafts of larger studies. The series will be distributed as a document and posted in Linfield’s Digital Commons. Comments will be invited and encouraged.

Organizers hope the working papers will generate discussion among faculty, according to Malcolm Greenlees, Glenn L. and Helen S. Jackson Professor of Business.

“Bringing research and ideas together in one collection will keep us informed of the development work of our colleagues,” said Greenlees.

Eric Schuck, professor of economics, added, “The series will also provide a publication outlet for student-faculty collaborative research efforts.”

For more information, contact Greenlees at ext. 2403, mgreen@linfield.edu.
