The IIPS Newsletter is a biannual publication and contains information about various academic and non-academic activities of the institute’s faculty, staff and students. The ‘Research Brief Series’ was initiated in 2007 and provides a platform to the faculty, research staff, research scholars and visiting fellows to quickly disseminate the important findings and highlights of their research before they are published in any scientific journal. The 'Working Paper Series' was launched in 2009-10 with the main objective to disseminate new research ideas, theoretical development and methodological insights initiated by IIPS to the national and international audience as quickly as possible. The work published under this series are peer-reviewed by the two external experts. The Director’s Report provides the actives under taken by all the departments/centers/cells information of the institute for one complete academic year and is presented at the convocation day by the Director of the institute.
