Open Meeting 2022

Open Meeting 2022

Presentations and Organised Sessions for the Open Meeting may be submitted from all fields of economics.

The submissions were evaluated by anonymous reviewers and then selected by the programme commission.

Publication of the Contributions

With approval during the submission process, accepted contributions will be published in EconStor, the online publication database of the ZBW – Leibniz Information Center Economy which is a part of the collection of all VfS conference contributions. Further publication is not intended by the Verein fuer Socialpolitik.

The collection of papers approved for publication for the 2022 Annual Conference can be found here.

EconStor is a disciplinary publication server for the distribution of economics research papers in Open Access. It is maintained by the ZBW - Leibniz Information Centre for Economics. Making your conference paper on EconStor as a pre-publication available, increases the visibility of your research (e.g. via RePEc) and does not conflict with the submission to a scholarly journal. If necessary, papers on EconStor can be withdrawn and deleted at any time. Further information here. 

For publication, the current version of a paper can be uploaded via CONVERIA until 28 August 2022. Later changes are only possible directly via EconStor.
