About Occasional papers

ASSA's Occasional Papers series published academic papers from social sciences disciplines which addressed public policy and other issues. ASSA Occasional Papers, including Occasional Papers (Policy Papers) and Occasional Papers (Census Series), were peer reviewed, and were aimed at a broad audience, including interested but non-academic readers. ASSA Occasional Papers (ISSN: 1323-7136) are printed in hard copy, and available for free download. Some older issues in the Occasional Papers series published non-peer reviewed Academy proceedings, and in particular lectures. These issues of the Occasional Papers series are designated accordingly, and include Occasional Papers (Cunningham Lectures), and Occasional Papers (Policy Discussion Papers). From late 2010, all non-peer reviewed ASSA publications can be found in Academy Proceedings.
