CCBS has a variety of recent and historical publications on central banking, links to which can be found on the right hand side of this page. Below is a brief description of each type of publication.
The views expressed in the publications are those of the authors and not necessarily those of the Bank of England.
In our Handbook series we aim to present particular topics which concern central banks in a concise, balanced and accessible manner, and in a practical context. The series of Handbooks in Central Banking has grown out of the activities of the Bank of England's Centre for Central Banking Studies in arranging and delivering training courses, conferences and expert advice for central banks and central bankers of countries across the globe. The views expressed in the Handbooks are those of the author(s) and not necessarily those of the Bank of England.
Our Technical Handbook series provides comprehensive coverage of complex topics which concern central banks. As with the Handbooks in Central Banking, these have grown out of the Bank of England's Centre for Central Banking Studies core activities of training and expert advice. The Technical Handbooks often contain more methodological material than the Handbooks, incorporating the experiences and expertise of the author(s) on topics that address the problems encountered by central bankers in their day-to-day work. The views expressed in the Technical Handbooks are those of the author(s) and not necessarily those of the Bank of England.
Joint Research Papers
Joint Research Papers are a record of collaborative research between the Centre for Central Banking Studies staff members and other central bankers from around the world. Some papers are jointly authored by CCBS staff whilst others are the outcome of research projects that have had significant CCBS advice. This series is a useful forum for promoting the wider dissemination of central bank research.
Lectures series (discontinued)
As financial markets have become increasingly complex, central bankers' demands for specialised expert advice and training has risen. The aim of Lecture series is to give wider exposure to lectures and presentations that address topical and technically advanced issues of relevance to central banks. The views expressed in the Lecture Series are those of the author(s) and not necessarily those of the Bank of England.
