Making economic research more readable and interesting…

IMF has redone its Research Bulletin.

IMF has renamed it as Research Perspectives and has presented it in a “fresher, bolder look”.

When you read the Spring/Summer 2018 issue of the IMF Research Perspectives (formerly published as IMF Research Bulletin), if we did it right, you will meet
the more approachable, more human side of IMF research and IMF researchers. The bulletin has just turned 18, and we thought this was a good time to revamp the design and content. How?

First, we transformed our Q&A feature into a complete interview. Second, we added more research summaries to give you a better sense of what IMF research has to offer on recent topical issues. Third, we changed the design to make your reading experience more enjoyable and reaching out to the contributors
easier. And, of course, we changed the name to Perspectives, which we feel more accurately reflects our new approach focused on sharing views and encouraging interaction.

One thing that hasn’t changed is our commitment to conduct and disseminate state-ofthe-art, policy-relevant research to foster further discussion for better
policymaking around the world. 

Such an undertaking would not have been possible without a dedicated group of individuals: the guest editorial team led by Sweta Saxena and the design team led by Felipe Leon deserve the utmost credit.

We hope you will like our fresher, bolder look. Let us know what you think.

Looks promising with all the colors and pictures.

Some institutions like IMF are making efforts to make their economic research more readable and accessible. This is encouraging.
