Objectives of SERP-P
The Socioeconomic Research Portal for the Philippines (SERP-P) is an online knowledge resource that contains socioeconomic studies and materials produced by the Philippine Institute for Development Studies (PIDS) and other academic and research institutions. Its establishment is in line with PIDS’ mandates of providing a common link between the government and research institutions, and of establishing a repository of socioeconomic research information.
SERP-P is the country’s first electronic repository of policy research and information that capitalizes on research networking, where users can access socioeconomic materials in various formats—journal articles, books, working papers, policy notes, research papers, newsletters—from multiple sources.
Promote and strengthen research networking and collaboration among researchers conducting economic and policy-oriented studies, and provide the public with easy and immediate access to socioeconomic information.
