UMN imageSince 2005, the Center has been working with ISW grant recipients to disseminate their findings in local workshops and colloquia as well as in national conferences and publications. In order to accommodate new modes of research reporting, as well as to make findings more immediately accessible to wider audiences, we are now in the process of encouraging grant recipients to share on our website some of the results of their research.

Until 2004, ISW grant recipients were encouraged to publish their results in the form of technical reports or monographs. The Center still offers nearly all these publications as abstracts, online PDFs, and in a hard copy available for purchase at minimal cost. Contact us for more details.

Technical reports

The aim of the Center's technical reports was quickly and effectively to disseminate the findings of Center-sponsored research, as well as valuable bibliographic information, to the University community and the broader public.
