How to join?

S-WoBA is open to all Business Administration working paper series at Nordic universities and research institutes. By participating in S-WoBA your working papers will receive greatly enhanced exposure, as can be seen from the statistics page. The papers are not only available from this site but also through the RePEc data base used by services such as EconPapers and IDEAS.

There is a SEK 2000 start up fee (to cover administration and support), after that participation in S-WoBA is free.
