BISD: a print collection of selected documents

World Trade Organization, Basic Instruments and Selected Documents, Geneva: World Trade Organization; Lanham, MD: Bernan, 2003-2008 (?) (covering 1995-).

BISD is the official compilation of documents in hardcopy, but it contains only selected documents. Each volume has an index. BISD does not contain WTO panel and Appellate Body reports or arbitration awards. For these, BISD refers researchers to the Dispute Settlement Reports co-published by the WTO and Cambridge University Press.
