HKS Faculty Research Dissemination

Faculty Research Connection

This site provides updated Harvard Kennedy School faculty publication citations, abstracts and URLs, including books, edited volumes, academic journal articles, magazine and newspaper articles, op-eds, public testimony, research reports and working papers. The Connection also provides overviews of HKS Research Centers, Programs and Institutes and highlights recent publications, working papers, teaching cases and dissertations.

HKS Faculty Research Working Papers

We are pleased to provide a forum for disseminating works-in-progress reflecting the broad range of research activities of Harvard Kennedy School (HKS) faculty members. You may search the database, view abstracts of papers, and download the full text of papers in Adobe Acrobat PDF format. The HKS Faculty Research Working Paper Series publishes working papers authored by current, full-time HKS faculty members.

Social Sciences Research Network

Every quarter, the Research Administration Office chooses six new papers from the HKS Faculty Research Working Paper Series and publishes them in electronic journal format via email in partnership with the Social Science Research Network (SSRN).  Devoted to the rapid worldwide dissemination of social science research, SSRN is composed of a number of specialized research networks in a variety of social sciences.

Harvard DASH (Digital Access to Scholarship) Repository

The Harvard DASH open access repository offers a continually expanding collection of scholarly article manuscripts by current HKS and Harvard faculty across a broad range of Harvard schools and disciplines, in many cases freely available for download.  The collection may be browsed by school, author name, article title, or keyword search.
