Working Paper Series



The BGSS Working Paper Series is a refereed online publication that aims to provide a forum for researchers from the Berlin Graduate School of Social Sciences, the Department of Social Sciences, and affiliated institutions to present their ongoing work to a wider academic audience. Contributions are welcome from diverse fields of research in political science and sociology using various methodological approaches. We accept research articles as well as critical literature reviews. Manuscript submissions receive independent feedback from at least two reviewers. Please note that publication as a working paper does not preclude later publication with a professional journal.
