Working Papers are pre-publication versions of research papers. Their value lies in the fact that they often include additional material that is removed as part of the revision and editing process leading up to acceptance for publication. For example, they may include more detailed proofs, or more extensive tables, than the final published version of the paper. As such, they provide a valuable record.
