Describes an automated database that was established under the RAND Project "Analysis and Comparison of U.S./USSR Technology." The database includes information extracted from some 90 Soviet technical journals specializing in physics, engineering, and related fields, and covers some 3,000 technical reports and reviews originated by over 4,000 authors, most of whom are affiliated with 65 research institutions. Reports may be generated from the database by sorting the following varibles in combinations: author, institute, research team, primary subject, secondary subject, year of publication, and file card number.

This report is part of the RAND Corporation Note series. The note was a product of the RAND Corporation from 1979 to 1993 that reported other outputs of sponsored research for general distribution.

Our mission to help improve policy and decisionmaking through research and analysis is enabled through our core values of quality and objectivity and our unwavering commitment to the highest level of integrity and ethical behavior. To help ensure our research and analysis are rigorous, objective, and nonpartisan, we subject our research publications to a robust and exacting quality-assurance process; avoid both the appearance and reality of financial and other conflicts of interest through staff training, project screening, and a policy of mandatory disclosure; and pursue transparency in our research engagements through our commitment to the open publication of our research findings and recommendations, disclosure of the source of funding of published research, and policies to ensure intellectual independence.
