Working Paper Series
The TTPI Working Paper series is open access and aims to promote tax and transfer research in Australia and internationally. The series aims to publish work in progress from all disciplines relevant to tax and transfer policy. Work that has already been published in a refereed journal or similar publication is not eligible to be included in the series.
To submit a paper for inclusion in the series, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org together with author names, abstract and keywords. Submissions will be reviewed by the Director and an external referee with expertise in the discipline, for general relevance and quality control, before publication. Note that this is not a formal refereeing process.
We are happy to publish working papers jointly with other working paper series. Copies of the TTPI Working Papers are also posted at SSRN.
