IWMI's on-line publication section contains several thousand pages of peer-reviewed research on water management.

The IWMI Research Reports Series is the Institute's flagship research publications, a series of internationally peer-reviewed research reports. The review process for Research Reports is similar to the review process for recognized international scientific journals (anonymous peer review). The purpose of research reports is to highlight generic scientific tools and lessons that can be culled from IWMI research. This series was created in 1995 and is well known in the worldwide community of water resources management, irrigation and agricultural research. Several thousand are distributed to readers and institutions in developing countries and the international development community. Several thousand more are downloaded from this web site.
The CA Research Report series captures results of collaborative research conducted under the Comprehensive Assessment of Water Management in Agriculture. It also includes reports contributed by individual scientists and organizations that significantly advance knowledge on key Assessment questions. Each report undergoes a rigorous peer-review process. The research presented in the series feeds into the Assessment's primary output - a "State of the World" report and set of options back by hundreds of leading water and development professionals and water users.
