OPHI publications include a Working Paper series, a Research in Progress series, MPI Methodological Notes series, OPHI Policy Briefings, Special issues of academic journals, and some special publications including poverty reports co-authored by OPHI.
The Working Papers present new academic research on multidimensional poverty. The papers are peer reviewed. Most of the papers in this series will be published in academic journals and books. Our Research in Progress series contains academic papers in progress, while our Policy Briefings are clear and concise introductions to key topics that are aimed at policymakers and students. MPI Methodological Notes provide technical background for the global MPI.
OPHI Update newsletter is published four times a year and gives an overview of the latest news about our work, publications and forthcoming events; the issues of OPHI Update can be read here. The list of published articles and book chapters of OPHI researchers can be found in OPHI Publications Archive.
Special issues of journals should be ordered through your local bookshop or library, or direct from the respective publishers. All other publications can be downloaded free of charge from this website. Printed copies are available to libraries and institutes in developing countries that do not have generally accessible internet connections on request.
