RDP 2001-10: A Select Bibliography of Published Research by Staff of the Reserve Bank of Australia: 1991–2001 1. Introduction

This bibliography provides a list of the major items of published research produced by staff of the Reserve Bank of Australia since 1991. It is a sequel to the bibliography compiled by Suzanna Chiang and Michael Power (1990)[1], whose format it largely replicates. It is selective in that it does not include unpublished external conference papers, university discussion papers, or publications aimed at school students or teachers. Nor does it include articles contained in the Bank's regular monthly Bulletin, for which an index is already available. In general, it excludes work by Bank staff completed while on secondment to other organisations.

The aim of this bibliography is to list the publications that resulted from economic analysis and research conducted by the staff of the Reserve Bank of Australia, or in some cases commissioned by the Reserve Bank. These publications can be assigned to four main categories: Research Discussion Papers, Occasional Papers, Conference Volumes, and other publications in books and economics journals.

The arrangement is as follows:

  1. Research Discussion Papers.
    In this section we list all the Research Discussion Papers issued by the Economic Research Department from 1991 to 2001. Those papers that have also been published in journals or books are indicated by footnotes.
  2. Occasional Papers.
    This section lists titles in the Reserve Bank of Australia's Occasional Papers series published since 1991.
  3. Conference Volumes.
    Contents of the proceedings of conferences held at the Reserve Bank of Australia are covered in this section, including papers commissioned from economists outside the Bank.
  4. Other Published Documents.
    In this section we include papers that are the result of work conducted by Bank staff and which have been published in books or journals, subject to the exclusions listed above. Works cited in the earlier sections are not included, but articles first published as Research Discussion Papers prior to 1991 are indicated by footnotes.

Entries in Section 1, 3 and 4 are arranged in chronological order. Entries in Section 2 are arranged by the Occasional Paper number.
