CUS Working Paper Series

The Working Paper Series (WPS) are ‘pre-publications’ published electronically by the Centre for Urban Studies and available online-only via CUS’ website. The WPS allows for timely and wide dissemination of research findings in the field of urban studies and provides our researchers with the possibility to get early feedback on their work. Working papers published on CUS’ WPS are included in the indices of Google Scholar. Upon publication, the CUS WPS version will be removed from our website and replaced by a direct link to the official publication. Announcements of new working papers are circulated in our newsletter.
