NIST Publications

NIST series publications, can be identified via the NIST Research Library's online catalog. Some NIST publications, including Special Publications, Technical Notes, etc., are freely available electronically, or some copies can be digitized upon request.

For more information about types of NIST series publications: Types of NIST Publications

The NIST Publications Portal is another way to locate NIST publications. There you will find links to publication databases specific to the NIST laboratories which represent broad areas of research such as chemistry, physics, information technology, and materials science.

The Journal of Research of the National Institute of Standards and Technology, is freely available to the public. Full text articles back to 1934 are currently available. Articles from the former title Bureau of Standards Journal of Research are available from 1928-1934, as well as the earlier publications from the Bulletin of the Bureau of Standards, 1904-1919.

Also, search the NIST Digital Archives (NDA) for the full-text publications, including the Journal of Research and selected series publications.
