I'm a PhD-student in economics and so far I have no experience with publishing. Before I submit my first article to a journal, I would like to publish it as a working paper. However, I would like to ask if this is useful. Is it rather the rule or the exception to publish a working paper in advance? And can the working paper have a negative impact on the subsequent publication in a journal? Is there anything else I should be aware of?

  • By 'publishing it as a working paper' you mean to post it on some Internet repository? – Philosopher of science Oct 9 '20 at 12:21
  • Do you have a supervisor? – user2705196 Oct 9 '20 at 12:22
  • @Philosopherofscience Yes, maybe on SSRN – TobKel Oct 9 '20 at 12:38
  • @user2705196 Yes, I have a supervisor – TobKel Oct 9 '20 at 12:39
  • I cannot comment much. Never did it. I'm always concerned that the journal is going to say that it's already out there. – Philosopher of science Oct 9 '20 at 12:44
