The largest international economics research database RePEc (Research Papers in Economics) has published its most recent ranking, which evaluates the Central European Labour Studies Institute (CELSI) as the No.1 institute in economic research in Slovakia. As in previous years, in 2014 CELSI has ranked No.1 in every month, leaving behind eighteen other economic research institutions in Slovakia.
