Welcome to the community website for SCHOLARs. The aim of this site is to bring together researchers who work in the field of education and labor economics, by providing an online research environment. The Universiteit van Amsterdam (UvA), Erasmus Universiteit Rotterdam (EUR) and Vrije Universiteit (VU) have initiated this website (see 'About').

You can search or browse articles of your fellow researchers on topics such as schooling, the labor market and economic development. Publications are immediately and freely available, whether they are already published1 or still in progress (e.g. working papers). Moreover, you can share your own publications (see 'Contact'). There will further be a 'Portal' to relevant bibliographic databases. A new electronic journal (still in development) will offer even better possibilities to bring research results to the attention of specialists within the academic world and beyond.

In the community website 'Forum' stimulating discussions will be held on education and labor economics topics. Furthermore, 'Seminars' and 'News' keep you informed about conferences and important developments in your field.
