DDVE’s publications aim to reach a large audience of practitioners and policymakers across both the mainstream and faith-based development communities, providing a unique vehicle for sharing knowledge. To achieve this objective DDVE launched in November 2008 four publication series: DDVE Studies, DDVE Working Papers, DDVE Notes and DDVE Briefs. All publications are freely available through the web and are made available through the RePEc websites to facilitate access by the public at large.
DDVE Studies are in most cases major pieces of work such as monographs and books. In many cases, the studies are published through an existing World Bank series (examples include World Bank Working Papers, and Directions in Development). DDVE studies are for the dissemination of World Bank-sponsored analytical work only.
DDVE Working Papers are research papers on specific issues, typically of 25-40 pages in length. Some of the papers are also published in other World Bank series, such as the Policy Research Working Papers, in which case they are then made also available through the DDVE Working Papers for wider access. DDVE working papers are in most cases for dissemination of World Bank-sponsored work, although exceptions are made on a case by case basis.
DDVE Notes are policy oriented notes of 4-6 pages in length written in easily accessible language. The objective of the notes is to summarize findings from empirical or conceptual work in a format useful for development practitioners and policy makers. While many of the notes are written by World Bank staff and consultants, the series seeks and welcomes guest contributions. If you are interested in submitting a note, please Contact Us.
DDVE Briefs are data oriented briefs of 5-10 pages in length written in easily accessible language. The objective of the briefs is to report in a descriptive way on useful data findings from household surveys and other sources. While many of the briefs are written by World Bank staff and consultants, the series seeks and welcomes guest contributions. If you are interested in submitting a brief, please Contact Us.
