The Quarterly Journal of Economic Research at a glance.

The Quarterly Journal of Economic Research is the oldest publication of DIW Berlin, having appeared as early as 1926. Since then a lot has changed, including the Journal. Since 2008, it has been given a new concept and a fresh design.

However, the basic idea remains the same: DIW Berlin editors feature and discuss current topics from economic policy. As before, the Journal does not publish research results of DIW Berlin. Rather, they focus on new perspectives, expert knowledge, and the overall picture.
