Journal History

The IDS Bulletin is the flagship journal from the Institute of Development Studies (IDS), bringing together the latest thinking and research form IDS and its partners and presenting this in an accessible way for development practitioners, policymakers and researchers. 

Since 1968 it has covered the major themes and influenced debates within international development. The journal is published six times a year, and each thematic issue is edited by IDS Research Fellow(s), drawing on contributions from within IDS and its global network of partners and collaborators within the sphere of development research, policy and practice.
