Job Market Papers on RePEc

The job market paper

In economics and finance, a crucial component of the file of any candidate graduating from a doctoral or PhD program and applying to research or teaching positions is his/her job market paper. This paper is the best that the candidate has written so far, and this merits dissemination. For this purpose, RePEc now has a working paper series specifically dedicated to the job market. Beyond being listed on EconPapers and IDEAS, these papers are disseminated through NEP to ensure maximum visibility. Other services use the RePEc data as well.

This service is only for those who are on the job market. Others can post their working papers in their local series if it participates in RePEc (see how to participate) or can upload at MPRA.
