The CREATe Working Paper series is an open access resource designed to rapidly disseminate original research by CREATe investigators and associated scholars to the wider community. In addition to ensuring that new research becomes immediately available to the public in this rapidly-changing field, the series captures digital outputs which are not traditionally suited to the academic format but which nevertheless serve as anchor points for discussion, debate and advancement of understanding.

New additions to the series are made constantly throughout the year. Types of papers published include 1) specially commissioned pieces on topical issues related to intellectual property and the creative economy; 2) scoping reviews of relevant literature and methodologies; 3) digital transcripts of live conferences and workshops; and 4) research outputs which may include pre-prints of articles or papers under development by CREATe affiliated researchers.

The Editorial Board of the CREATe Working Paper series is headed up by Professor Philip Schlesinger and consists of a group of 15 senior faculty and future research leaders. The Editorial Board makes selection decisions about CREATe-funded research to feature in the series and evaluates unsolicited submissions for further external review. For more information about the Working Paper series and submission guidelines, consult the Guidelines for Authors page.

2014-07-07 16_53_31-ZENODOThe CREATe Working Paper series is committed to public, open access. For that reason, the series is made available directly below and permanently archived on Zenodo.
