Scandinavian Working Papers in Business Administration

About S-WoBA

S-WoBA acts as a clearing house and central repository for bibliographic data about Nordic working papers in Economics. In most cases the working papers are also available in electronic form and can be downloaded from S-WoBA.

By collecting information about many working papers in one place we create critical mass and are able to generate quite a lot of traffic and publicity for the Scandinavian Economics profession, as can be seen from the statistics page. Getting your work into S-WoBA is the best way to get wide spread exposure for your research.

S-WoBA started out in 1998 as a purely Swedish project, initiated by the Stockholm School of Economics Library within its function of National Resource Library in economics. S-WoBA is now being run with the support of the Stockholm School of Economics. Since there has been a considerable interest from the other Nordic countries, the scope was expanded in the beginning of 2001 and participation from all the Nordic countries is now welcome. Scandinavian Working Papers in Economics is thus somewhat of a misnomer. It is really a Nordic project, but this way we can keep the S-WoBA name of the site.

Authors and the organizations sponsoring the different working paper series retain full control of their work. S-WoBA doesn't claim copyright, ownership or anything like that (there is more information about copyright issues). We do not keep the full text files on the S-WoBA server, instead we link to the full text files on the organizations own web server.

The manual describes how to add and manage papers in S-WoBA.
