The Journal of Research of the National Institute of Standards and Technology is the flagship publication of the National Institute of Standards and Technology. It has been published under various titles and forms since 1904, with its roots as Scientific Papers issued as the Bulletin of the Bureau of Standards.
In announcing the first volume, S.W. Stratton (first Director of the Bureau) wrote, "the Bulletin ... will embody the results of its investigations, research, and other work which may be of importance to the scientific, technical, and manufacturing interests of the country."
Today, the Journal of Research of NIST continues to serve as a major mechanism for NIST scientists to report on their research in metrology and related fields of physical science.
