From 1968 to 2006 the MPE published an annual report, which summarized the events of the previous year and included all publications of this period as well as statistics and lists of all groups, staff, committees, etc. From 1993 the annual report was published in both German and English.
The statistics and list of publications continue to be published under as the "Annual Statistics".
For the evaluation by the Advisory Board, which visits the institute every 2-3 years, a summary of the scientific work of the Institute is created in the form of a poster book. This complements the annual statistics with the scientific part of the former annual reports.
