The Institute's publication programme is a response to the need of charting a unique path in rural management, a discipline defined and developed by IRMA. The research writings of the faculty in the initial phase emerging out of research and consultancy projects was of three types: research reports, case studies and workshop reports. These were the first three series of publications of CORPAS. The faculty was also coming up with cases in rural management, which was soon added to the CORPAS portfolio of publications. As academic life at the Institute began to encompass an increasing array of aspects of rural sector, the publication programme was modified into seven series: Working Paper, Research Paper, Workshop Report, Case Study, Cases in Rural Management, Monograph and Occasional Publication.
The Institute has a publication programme managed by the Committee on Research Publications and Seminars (CORPAS) which facilitates the dissemination of the Institute's research work. The CORPAS looks after: publications, seminar series and research and consultancy projects. The Committee consists of faculty members and it is headed by a Convenor.
IRMA also has added two more series into its overall publication programme namely a quarterly newsletter called Network and a bi-annual journal called International Journal of Rural Management.
