The Centre has a rigorous research dissemination programme. Dissemination of research is carried out through regular publication of books, monographs, and research reports. The working paper series brings out initial findings of faculty research for discussion and review before they are considered for formal publication. The faculty and students are also encouraged to publish books through reputed publishing houses.
At present, there are a total of 500 working papers and 46 books brought out under the CDS programme. The Centre also publishes a quarterly Newsletter, CDS Chronicle, to reach out its activities to a wider audience.
