Enhance new ways to meet other people in your field of interest. The WEA Conferences are open access and aim to bring together on-going research works and young career academics from all over the world. Check out our calls for papers and submit your contributions, or read the papers and join us at the open Discussion Forums.
In most cases, an eBook and a paperback book of papers will be published – and published within months of the close of each conference.
The WEA Conference Book Series paperbacks will be produced by College Publications and available on Amazon.
