INSTITUTE OF SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC RESEARCH
UNIVERSITY OF THE WEST INDIES
The Institute's broad objective is to help to build a climate of research which can
provide the bases for scholarly excellence. There has been an obvious trend toward con-
centration on development problems in general and Caribbean Studies in particular. In
this respect the Institute's aim is to act as a catalyst not only for understanding the
Caribbean environment but also for providing the concepts, models and theories against
which the performance of Caribbean societies and economies may be assessed.
The Institute's publication division processes approximately 150 articles and 20
monographs and working papers per year. Its policy is determined by an Editorial Commit-
tee of which the Director is the Chairman and the Publication's Editor is responsible for
the day to day administration. The oldest of the Institute's publications is the quar-
terly journal, Social and Economic Studies, which began in 1953.
ISER has three branches at the'Mona Campus, Jamaica; the Cave Hill Campus,
Barbados; and the St. Augustine Campus, Trinidad and Tobago. Each branch has an indepen-
dent publishing program.
