Research at the BIS

At a glance

Selected journal publications by BIS economists, 2014-17


Research at the BIS supports central banks in their pursuit of monetary and financial stability by providing in-depth economic analysis. BIS research is perhaps best known for its perspective that places emphasis on the links between the real economy and the financial system, on global rather than country-specific aspects and on longer-term drivers of activity rather than current conditions.

The BIS makes available its research findings through a range of BIS publications and through publications in peer-reviewed journals. Publications by individual BIS authors are listed here.

BIS researchers collaborate extensively with researchers in academia, central banks and other policy institutions. The BIS operates a range of visiting programmes for researchers, including the Lamfalussy Senior Research Fellowship for long-term visits by resident scholars, the BIS Research Fellowships for short-term collaborative visits by academics and the Central Bank Research Fellowship programme for visits by researchers from member central banks. In addition, the BIS organises conferences to galvanise research in emerging areas of policy interest, and serves as the hub for the BIS Research Network which brings together researchers in central banks and in academia for regular meetings on monetary and financial stability issues.

An independent review of BIS research was conducted in 2016 by an expert panel. Details of the survey of the users of BIS research and updates of the rankings mentioned in the independent review are available.
