Research publications

Important findings of economic research are published in the NBS Working Papers (WP) series. The papers contribute to the professional discussions in relevant fields of monetary policy, fiscal policy, macroeconomic models, economic and monetary union, real convergence and financial stability. With the aim of addressing wider professional public new papers are primarily published in English. However, the full version is always accompanied by a non-technical summary in Slovak. Analysis and findings outside the scope of working papers are published occasionally (as Policy Paper - PP, Occasional Paper - OP or Discussion Paper - DP).

The most interesting results of the research are often published in professional and peer-reviewed scientific journals.

The research is usually conducted by Research Department staff, but contributions from other NBS departments or external co-authors are encouraged.
