Publishing is one of the key things researchers do. It is the only way they can spread new knowledge to their colleagues and the general public. In addition, their ‘research output’ – the articles, expert reports, applications, etc. that they produce – is also an important criterion for funding, for the researchers themselves as well as for their research groups or institutions.

Our researchers publish around 800 expert reports and scientific articles per year. These scientific articles regularly appear in internationally renowned journals such as Nature and Science. However, our researchers also write around forty science outreach articles each year.

You can find all of these publications in our database.

The institute also publishes its own journals and scientific reports or monograph series. Their editing, publication, and distribution are coordinated by the Scientific Publications Unit.
