Picking a Paper Topic

Working Paper Repositories

Find new topics before they are even published in journals and law reviews.  Authors submit their papers in these pre-publication databases while they wait to get published.  Browse recent papers to get ideas about what topics are hot and how issues are presented.

Working papers, technical reports, conference procedings, and government documents, traditionally were called gray literature and before the web, these were very difficult to locate. Not so anymore!
