The AGRODEP Modeling Consortium is launching its Working Paper Series, a bilingual (English and French) online publication that aims at enhancing the visibility of African researchers and experts as well as contributing to the policy dialogue on African Growth and Development. Manuscripts are accepted only from AGRODEP members and the focus of the analysis must be on economic growth, poverty reduction, and development policy in Africa. There are no pre-conditions on the manuscript length and presentation.

Members are invited to submit their manuscript to the Editor, Fousseini Traore at fousseini.traore@cgiar.org, either in English or in French.

The Editorial board consists of the Editor, Associate Editors, and Referees.

Reviewers will remain anonymous to the authors, and vice-versa. The initial review process will be completed within three months from the date of submission and the entire evaluation procedure of a manuscript should not take more than six months.

A language (English or French) editing is undertaken during the publication process for successful manuscripts. All papers must have abstracts in both English and French.

Further details on the submission procedure can be found in the AGRODEP Working Paper Guidelines.
