The University of the Philippines Center for Integrative and Development Studies (UP CIDS) Publications Unit is in charge of the production of policy briefs, discussion papers, and the Philippine Journal for Public Policy: Interdisciplinary Development Perspectives (PJPP).

Policy briefs are released year-round, covering a diverse range of topics from the UP CIDS programs. Discussion papers are released quarterly, accepting submissions from the UP CIDS programs.

Historically, the PJPP is a biannual peer-reviewed publication produced by the UP CIDS. Its articles examine contemporary social, cultural, economic, and political issues in the Philippines and in the region. The PJPP also accepts review articles on newly released titles and editions of book publications in print.
