World Bank


Jobs Group publications are segmented into four publication products: Jobs Series, Jobs Notes, Jobs Working Papers, and Jobs Guides. The Jobs Series house original analytic reports authored by the World Bank and are intended to influence programs/policy in client countries. They convey Bank-endorsed recommendations and represent the formal opinion of the unit on the topic. The Jobs Notes are short briefs that capture lessons learned or policy issues from Bank operations and research in a succinct and easily digestible format. They often reference larger works in the Series. Jobs Working Papers include high-quality documents from research or operations on specific technical topics. Jobs Guides contain practical toolkits and guidelines for project managers, economists, researchers, and other development professionals working on jobs projects.
