** “Working papers” are subject to the first internal review of papers. Therefore, it should be a comprehensive treatise on the chosen topic, including all analysed ideas, main arguments and findings. In principle, it should be very close to the final version. After the first internal review, the authors will be notified and will be allowed to amend or change their papers according to the reviewer’s suggestions. Therefore, “working paper” is definitely not merely a concept or extended synopsis of the paper. The “working paper” must follow the paper template.
