Collection of reference workflow models in SAP R/3 for research



within SAP R/3 (at least in version 4.6c) there must be a collection of reference workflow models modeled as EPCs that can be exported e.g. with ARIS Toolset for SAP NetWeaver. These models were used for some research about process metrics in the past (e.g. by Jan Mendling [1]).

For own research purposes, I am interested in these models. But the university I'm working with, has no SAP R/3 installation.

Is there a possibility to get these reference workflow models by SAP (of course strictly for research purposes)? I already sent an e-mail to SAP but haven't got any "fitting" answers - probably because my question did not rearch the right person for my problem.

Maybe, a SAP employee working in this area reads this message and can help me.

Thanks in advance!
