Lawfare is pleased to announce that it is beginning publication of occasional papers, under title of the Lawfare Research Paper Series.  Papers published in this series are ones that the Lawfare editors regard as particularly valuable and important, and will appear on an occasional basis as the editors come across them.  We are not accepting submissions to this series, which in any case will appear on a highly irregular basis, but will be on the lookout for papers of interest.  Lawfare Research Papers might be working papers; working papers intended for submission for publication in some other venue (authors are encouraged to take papers to regular publication venues as well; the Research Paper Series is not intended to be preclusive, but quite the opposite); or papers that have their final publication as Lawfare's own.  Lawfare will set up a page for hosting its Research Paper Series here on the blog, but we also encourage authors to post them to SSRN or other open source repositories.  We strongly encourage editors of journals and law reviews to be aware of these papers and to consider inviting the authors to publish revised and finalized papers with you.   Kenneth Anderson will handle this feature as Reviews editor, alongside the Book Review and the Readings; we will work out the kinks as we go along.  We look forward to publishing the first of the Lawfare Research Paper Series later today.
