What are NBER Working Papers?

Hard Copy Subscriptions
INCLUDE FREE ONLINE ACCESS for everyone at your organization. Subscribers also receive, by mail in hard copy, the full NBER Working Paper Series of approximately 1,000 papers published each year. Subscriptions are free to Corporate Associates. Anyone interested in becoming a Corporate Associate should contact Denis Healy.  For others within the United States, the standard rate for a full hard copy subscription is $10,000 or academic libraries and faculty members, $8,000. Partial subscriptions, delineated by program, are also available. Effective January 1, 2017, a five-tier pricing structure for partial subscriptions, based on the average number of working papers distributed by each program in recent years, replaces the more varied set of partial subscription prices that prevailed in past years. This structure reduces the subscription cost for many partial subscribers, although for some, there will be price increases. In most cases, these increases more closely harmonize the average cost per paper across different partial subscriptions. We appreciate our readers' understanding of this pricing re-alignment.

On-line access is included in the price of domestic and foreign subscriptions. If you prefer, you may purchase an "on-line only" subscription that would allow all users at your site electronic access to our working papers. Please see the pricing information listed below. New subscriptions begin the month following receipt of payment and run for twelve months.
