RAND Labor and Population staff communicate their research to policymakers, sponsors, and the scientific community through briefings, conference presentations, research seminars, international workshops, books, articles in leading professional journals, and RAND reports and special publications. The working paper series provides a forum for publishing work in progress and soliciting comments from fellow researchers within and outside of RAND. To distribute the staff's journal articles widely, the division publishes them in the RAND External Publication (Reprint) series.
RAND disseminates its research results as broadly as possible to benefit the public good. The majority of publicly available research documents published since 1998 are available for purchase through our bookstore along with a free download option.
