The Development Research News is a bimonthly publication of the Institute which highlights
findings and recommendations culled from PIDS-sponsored research and fora. This newsletter
also features special articles on key national and current issues as well as news on PIDS
activities participated in by the staff that provide an inside look at the people within
the Institute. The main objective of the newsletter is to highlight policy-oriented but
nontechnical issues deemed relevant and timely.
The Discussion Papers are preliminary, unedited and unreviewed papers circulated
on a limited basis for the purpose of eliciting critical comments and suggestions for
refinement of the studies. They may eventually graduate into any of the Institute's
regular publication series. The Philippine APEC Study Center Network (PASCN) also
publishes discussion papers on APEC-related matters.
Economic Issue of the Day
The Economic Issue of the Day is a two-page publication which deals with concepts behind
certain economic issues. This dissemination outlet aims to define and explain, in simple
and easy-to-understand terms, basic economic concepts as they relate to current and
everyday economics-related matters.
Journal of Development
The Philippine Journal of Development, formerly Journal of Philippine
Development, is a professional journal published twice a year
which focuses on the various aspects of Philippine development particularly on economy,
business, public administration, foreign relations, sociology, political dynamics and
other topics which have strong policy implications on Philippine concerns. The Journal
serves as a publication outlet of research studies conducted under the auspices of the
Institute for greater dissemination and wider reach of the Institute's target audience.
The target readers include policymakers, planners, key government officials and other
interested individuals and organizations with particular focus on both local and
foreign-based researchers and research institutions and the academe.
The Research Paper Series are the final outputs of the research staff. The Series is a
formal publication meant to promote research, stimulate discussion and encourage the use
of study results. Studies published under this Series have been reviewed by an internal
publications review committee and by external referees. Studies are original and have not
been published in any form and contain the rationale, framework, methodology, conclusions
or recommendations and other relevant information.
Books are the ultimate printing outlet of PIDS studies which caters to a broad-based
audience or the general public. These books deal with various important policy concerns
presented in a comprehensive and coherent manner. They include topics of great
significance to the body of knowledge in a particular area of development.
