Show Summary Details

This reference list was prepared under the aegis of the Interdepartmental Working Group on Fund Policy Advice,1,2 and attempts to synthesize in 11 major economic areas research carried out by IMF staff from 1991 to 1998. Given the broad nature of many policy issues, there is necessarily some overlap across topics.

Research activity in the IMF emphasizes the links between the organization’s policy and operational concerns. The main objectives of research in the IMF are to further the staff’s understanding of policy and operational issues relevant to the institution, and to improve the analytical quality of the work prepared for management and the Executive Board and the advice provided to member countries.

The scope of research in the IMF is defined by the purposes and functions of the institution. Subjects such as the international monetary system clearly fall under the IMF’s mandate, and the institution is singularly well placed to examine these issues. Developments in the international economy and the changing circumstances of member countries are also important factors governing the IMF’s research activity. Furthermore, a substantial proportion of the research on macroeconomic issues in developing countries continues to be undertaken by the IMF.

To foster innovation and ensure quality control, the IMF makes much of its research available outside the institution (see box) and encourages staff to interact with academia and other research organizations through conferences, seminars, and occasional joint research projects. The visiting scholars program has also enhanced the quality of research done in the IMF. This program brings in leading members of the economics profession from around the world to assist in the preparation of papers for the Executive Board and to conduct research on IMF-related issues. The IMF complements its research activity by drawing on the work of other international organizations, such as the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development and the World Bank, in their areas of expertise, and these organizations in turn draw on IMF research.

IMF Research Available to the Public

World Economic Outlook: This semiannual report publishes forecasts of the world economy and individual economies. The World Economic Outlook, which is written by a team of IMF staff, presents the staff’s views on the direction of the global economy. The World Economic Outlook is published as part of the World Economic and Financial Surveys. Other publications in this series include International Capital Markets, Staff Studies for the World Economic Outlook, and surveys of trade policy, debt rescheduling, and the like.

IMF Staff Papers: This quarterly journal presents theoretical and empirical analyses of international economic and monetary issues. These papers represent the more academic side of the IMF’s research.

Economic Reviews: These country reports are adapted from background papers prepared for the Executive Board. The research is highly macroeconomic, offering many current statistics on the economy being studied. To date, about thirty Economic Reviews have been published, most of them covering the countries of the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe.

Occasional Papers: These periodic studies cover many topics in international economics. Occasional Papers offer nontechnical analyses of both theoretical and empirical issues.

Working Papers: The Working Paper series offers a range of economic research—from highly technical pieces, to country and regional studies, to policy analysis. About 200 Working Papers are published each year.

Policy Discussion Papers (formerly Papers on Policy Analysis and Assessment): These policy-oriented papers are shorter and less technical than the Working Papers. The papers are written with the policymaker and interested noneconomist in mind.

Statistical Publications: The IMF collects an extensive array of country statistics, which are published in several series. They include International Financial Statistics (which reports macroeconomic indicators for each member). Direction of Trade Statistics, Balance of Payments Statistics Yearbook, and Government Finance Statistics Yearbook.

Books and Seminar Volumes: The IMF publishes books and seminar volumes on a range of topics.

All IMF publications are listed under the IMF’s website (http://www.imf.org). Selected IMF publications are also available in full text. For more information on IMF publications, contact

A summary outline of the 11 major areas of research and correlated Journal of Economic Literature (JEL) classification numbers for the 1991–98 research output are provided below. The research cited is on a selective rather than an exhaustive basis. For simplicity, entries are organized by classification field, alphabetically by the last name of the first author, and in ascending date order, rather than by all authors’ names. A long dash (———) at the beginning of an entry represents the preceding author or authors’ entry in full.
