Working papers are authored by NTA project members. Appropriate subject matter includes conceptual issues related to NTA, methodological issues related to NTA, and applications of NTA. Although the expectation is that Working Papers will eventually be published, preliminary drafts of papers are welcome. Note that drafts are easily updated. Only the most recent draft should be included in the Working Papers series.
Team members should upload working papers using the next available Working Paper number and following the format used for the Working Papers webpage. The filename should use the initials of the authors and the year and a, b, c, . . . to distinguish it from other documents in the database.
