CHAPTER ONE: GENERAL INFORMATION
Technical Report and Publication Repositories

In addition to the National Technical Information Service (NTIS) mentioned above, various departments and agencies produce and distribute their own technical reports. No single database exists, particularly on national security related and classified reports. This sections lists various resources to find technical reports from DOD, DOE, EPA, IAEA and NASA. Additional resources are listed in: Appendix B (DOE Policy, Technical and Environmental Reports), which includes major Technical Reports, nuclear energy publications, and Environmental Impact Statements and Assessments by title; Appendix C (DOD and DOE Directives and Manuals), which includes a listing of Department of Defense Nuclear-Related Directives, Air Force Nuclear Weapons-Related Instructions and Documents, and DOE Nuclear Weapons-Related Directives, Guide, Pamphlets and Notices.
