IDS Researchers produce a huge range of material – including journal articles, research and evidence reports, policy and rapid response briefings, and working papers – often co-publishing with partner organisations.
As part of IDS’ commitment to making knowledge available and relevant to those who can use it to bring about positive change, the majority of IDS publications and co-publications are freely available to download. In addition, IDS Fellows contribute regularly to the flagship IDS journal, the IDS Bulletin and to many other development-related journals.
