The Institute's publication programme is a response to the need forcharting a unique path in rural management, a discipline defined and developed by IRMA. The research writings of the faculty, emerging out in the initial phase of research and consultancy projects were of three types: research reports, case studies and workshop reports. These were the first three series of publications of the Committee on Research, Publication and Seminars (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 under-served 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.
