IMF Working Papers
IMF Working Papers are designed to make research by individual IMF staff members available to a wide academic audience. These papers are generally longer and more technical than Staff Position Notes (Series that replaced Policy Discussion Papers at the end of 2008).
World Bank Policy Research Working Papers
The Policy Research Working Paper Series disseminates the findings of works in progress to encourage the exchange of ideas about development issues. Titles are submitted from units around the World Bank for review and inclusion in this series, which is managed by the Development Economics Research Support unit.
