The Research Report was first compiled in 1990 as a means of recording the yearly production of published works by staff. Over the years this report has grown to encompass all types of research, including lectures and exhibitions, produced Museum-wide. It is now an invaluable indicator of the depth and variety of material produced yearly by the Victoria and Albert Museum.

The V&A's annual Research Bulletin showcases a selection of pioneering research undertaken across the Museum by staff, visiting research fellows and graduate students. It complements the V&A Research Report, which provides comprehensive information on the whole of the Museum's research output.

The Annual Bulletin of the V&A/RCA Course in the History of Design includes student essays, details on the Degree Recipients, staff research outcomes and alumni news.

All reports are in .pdf format. You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view these files.
