In 2012, IRRI's Communication and Publishing Services unit streamlined the format of the annual report with the printed version now limited to a brochure format summarizing research highlights, milestones, and financial information.
The most interesting stories, composed of articles from Rice Today magazine and media releases, are highlighted to give the reader a full view of what IRRI's been up to in the past year.
Currently, IRRI also takes the lead in drafting the GRiSP annual report, having produced the first two installments in 2011 and 2012 in a traditional publication format.
