Discussion papers

Research reports that are completed at the Bank of Finland are published at first as discussion papers. The series distributes information on the key research areas and results that are topical from the viewpoint of the Bank's strategic aims. The aim of the series is also to inspire discussion among experts.  

Discussion papers are published in English, and they include an abstract in Finnish. They are published online in PDF format. Discussion papers may also be subscribed to electronically, in which case the subscriber receives an alert via email immediately after a new discussion paper has been released online.  

The series has been published since 1988. The discussion papers that have been published after 1996 are available on the Bank of Finland website, and previous publications will be added soon to this site in PDF format.  

Previously published discussion papers may be obtained in PDF format by email from the Bank of Finland (research@bof.fi). Copies can also be borrowed from the Bank of Finland library.
