Centre for Business and Society - Working Paper Series

Centre for Business and Society

Working Paper Series

Showcasing Contemporary Research In Business And Management At Manchester Metropolitan University.

What is the Working Paper Series?

The Working Paper Series publishes and promotes the work of Centre for Business and Society researchers in a timely way that enables the development of research outputs for further publication in academic journals. It is a showcase for research groups and centres, and a valuable resource for those wishing to disseminate their work to a wide audience. The WPS contributes to the research culture in Centre for Business and Society and is an effective window on our research activity.

The Working Paper Series was launched in 2000 and since then has been a valuable vehicle for established and early career researchers to reach important peer audiences, communicating their achievements and contributions to their domain.
