All submissions should be emailed to DSAI coordinator at with WPS Submission in the email ‘subject’ field. Please address any queries also to this email address.

Note: Working Papers cannot have been published previously elsewhere in their current form but publication through the WPS on DSAI’s website does not prevent an updated or improved version from being submitted for later publication elsewhere.
