MPIeR Research Paper Series
The institute’s own Research Paper Series is edited by the directors, Thomas Duve and Stefan Vogenauer. Since 2012, this multilingual series is available online in the Social Science Research Network (SSRN) eLibrary. Working papers, pre-prints and post-prints that provide new insights, perspectives and suggestions for legal-historical research are published in Open Access.
In 2017, an additional subseries, subsidia et instrumenta, was created to publish resources for researchers such as bibliographies or collections of primary sources. The results of the Institute’s research project »Historical Dictionary of Canon Law in Hispanic America and the Philippines. 16th-18th Centuries (DCH)« are also published as part of the Research Paper Series. All articles submitted undergo peer review.
