Titles are submitted to the editorial team for internal review and inclusion in the series. As ‘works in progress’,
these are drafts prior to review and publication in scientific journals. The WP thus functions as an institutional
repository of first-cut material meant to stimulate an ongoing discussion and scholarship. It is in no way an obstacle
to those seeking to further develop and formally publish their work. Publication as a working paper does not preclude
its publication elsewhere.

Throughout the course of the RUNIN project, the WP will periodically publish papers that fall within its academic
scope. Contributions are welcomed from RUNIN fellows and supervisors, academics and PhD students. For further information,
please check the WP series guidelines or contact the editorial team at
