IDDRI organises its publications policy around its own collections,  books in partnership (such as Planet for Life, the result of a scientific collaboration with the French Development Agency and The Energy and Resource Institute, and an editorial partnership with Armand Colin for its French edition, Regards sur la Terre) and papers in scientific journals.

IDDRI's own collections are made up of Policy Briefs, Working Papers and Studies.

  • Policy Briefs review issues under discussion in international fora and examine controversies, and provide stakeholders with a condensed and precise overview of current debates and draw practical conclusions. Policy Briefs can also be reports of conferences.
  • Working Papers provide documented overviews of relevant questions, and are rapidly published and circulated in order to fuel current debates. Working Papers can be internship reports, draft versions of scientific papers, background papers for conferences, invited authors' views on specific issues, etc. The texts are the responsibility of their authors.
  • Studies are peer-reviewed articles which provide in-depth analyses of a question; they may conclude a research cycle or a scientific mission.
