The World Bank Research Observer

Editor: Peter Lanjouw

Published on behalf of: The World Bank

The World Bank journals enjoy the largest circulation of any economics title; The World Bank Research Observer is freely distributed to more than 9,100 subscribers in non-OECD countries.
The World Bank Research Observer seeks to inform nonspecialist readers about research being undertaken within the Bank and outside the Bank in areas of economics relevant for development policy. Requiring only a minimal background in economic analysis, its surveys and overviews of key issues in development economics research are intended for policymakers, project officers, journalists keeping up to date, and teachers and students of development economics and related disciplines. Papers for the Observer are not sent out to referees, but all articles published are assessed and approved by the Editorial Board, which includes three to four distinguished economists from outside the Bank. The Observer has nearly 1,500 subscribers in OECD countries and nearly 10,000 subscribers in developing countries.
