PubDefense: Public Access Search



DoD and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence/Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (ODNI/IARPA) Implementation of Public Access

The PubDefense: Public Access search interface contains an initial collection of DoD- and ODNI/IARPA-funded published journal articles and accepted manuscripts. Additional metadata, full-text, and links to documents will be added as they are submitted to DTIC. Access to the full-text of items in this collection will be available after a maximum embargo of 12-months.
