ISQOLS Working Paper Series (WPS) on Quality-of-Life (QOL) 

Published Submissions:

Call for Papers: 

Paper submissions are welcomed for the ISQOLS Working Paper Series (WPS) on Quality-of-Life (QOL).

The goal of the ISQOLS WPS on QOL is to collect and distill the best ideas from the ISQOLS community. The series is intended to improve the society’s visibility, establish ISQOLS as the prime reference point for QOL research, and provide an opportunity to communicate results to a broader audience.

The edited series will be produced in an official ISQOLS publication and distributed via our organization’s newsletters and social media platforms, and possibly SSRN and MPRA. 


All ISQOLS members are welcome to submit. Currently, there are no specific submission deadlines. 

  • Invited authors have 6 months to submit their papers. 

  • ISQOLS Fellows are required to submit at least one paper to the WPS during their fellowship period. 

Papers can be submitted to with “ISQOLS WPS” in the subject line 

Submissions are not peer reviewed, but will be reviewed by the WPS editor(s). 

Paper Guidelines: 

  • All papers must be in English 

  • Submission of a manuscript implies: that the author has the right to distribute the manuscript freely, and  work described has not been published before; that its release has been approved by all co-authors, if any, as well as by the responsible authorities – tacitly or explicitly – at the institute where the work has been carried out. The publisher will not be held legally responsible should there be any claims for compensation.

Text Formatting

  • Manuscripts should be submitted in Word.

  • Use a normal, plain font (e.g., 10-point Times Roman) for text.

  • Use italics for emphasis.

  • Use the automatic page numbering function to number the pages.

  • Do not use field functions.

  • Use tab stops or other commands for indents, not the space bar.

  • Use the table function, not spreadsheets, to make tables.

  • Use the equation editor or MathType for equations.

  • Save your file in docx format (Word 2007 or higher) or doc format (older Word versions)
