DoD Public Access

This DoD Public Access Search provides access to journal articles that are the result of DoD funded research. This site is being developed for the Department of Defense in cooperation with the Department of Energy and is in an early beta stage.

  • The database contains an initial collection of published journal articles and accepted manuscripts as a demonstration of its functionality and eventual expanded content.
  • Additional metadata and links to published articles and accepted manuscripts will be added as they are submitted to the Defense Technical Information Center.
  • When the DoD Public Access Search webpage moves beyond this proof of concept, it will offer distributed full-text access to all DoD-affiliated accepted manuscripts or articles after a 12 month embargo.

DoD is implementing a plan to provide the public with access to these journal articles in accordance with the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) memorandum, Increasing Access to the Results of Federally Funded Scientific Research, dated 22 February 2013.

Establishment of DoD policies and full implementation of the public access plan will be accomplished in incremental steps. We welcome your comments on this initial DoD Public Access Search.

Please send us your feedback.

In addition, we welcome your input on additional articles to add to the DoD collection.
