One of the main objectives of the IIES is to produce outstanding research for publication in leading international journals. Here you can find IIES working papers in our Seminar Papers Series, doctoral theses in the Monograph series and scientific articles published in journals by our faculty.


IIES' researchers are frequently published in leading journals. Here is a collection of articles accepted for publication or published in the five leading journals in economics: American Economic Review, Econometrica, Journal of Political Economy, Quarterly Journal of Economics and The Review of Economic Studies.
