The formal publications of the National Bureau of Standards—some 1,000 papers in 1979— are the primary way of communicating the results of NBS programs to its varied technical audiences, and the general public. Publications are a major end product of the Bureau's efforts. These take the form of the Bureau's three periodicals, its ten non periodical series, interagency reports, and articles in the journals of professional organizations and technological associations.

This annual catalog, Publications of the National Bureau of Standards, lists the 1979 output of papers documenting the results of the Bureau's current programs. The various media in which these papers appeared are as follows:

with primary emphasis on the work at NBS. The magazine highlights and reviews such issues as energy research, fire protection, building technology, metric conversion, pollution abatement, health and safety, and consumer product performance. In addition, it reports the results of Bureau programs in measurement standards and techniques, properties of matter and materials, engineering standards and services, instrumentation, and automatic data processing.

The table of contents for each issue in 1979 is listed in Section 5.3. pages 57 and 58. Issued monthly.

Editors: Juli Chappell, Gail Porter, and Barbara Plocinik




The National Bureau of Standards Journal of Research, a bimonthly, reports NBS research and development in those physical and engineering disciplines where the Bureau is active. These include physics, chemistry, engineering, mathematics, and computer sciences. Papers cover a broad range of subjects, with major emphasis on measurement methodology and on the basic technology underlying standardization. Also included from time to time are survey articles on topics closely related to the Bureau's technical and scientific programs. As a special service to subscribers, each issue contains complete citations for all recent NBS publications. Papers published during 1979 in the Journal are reported in this catalog.

This Journal is published quarterly by the American Chemical Society and the American Institute of Physics for the National Bureau of Standards. The Journal provides critically evaluated physical and chemical property data, fully documented as to the original sources and the criteria used for evaluation. Critical reviews of measurement techniques assess the accuracy of available data in a given technical area. The principal source for the Journal is the National Standard Reference Data System (NSRDS). The Journal is not intended as a publication outlet for original experimental measurements normally reported in the primary research literature, nor for descriptive or primarily theoretical review articles. (See also Section 1.3. National Standard Reference Data Series.)

[blocks in formation]

SPECIAL PUBLICATIONS-include proceedings of conferences sponsored by NBS, NBS annual reports, and other special publications such as wall charts, pocket cards, and bibliographies. Special subject-matter subseries include Semiconductor Measurement Technology (SP400- ), Standard Reference Materials (SP260- ), Precision Measurement and Calibration (SP300- ), Law Enforcement Technology (SP480- ), and Computer Science and Technology (SP500- ).

reau of Standards administers the Voluntary Product Standards program as a supplement to the activities of the private sector standardizing organizations. FEDERAL INFORMATION PROCESSING STANDARDS PUBLICATIONS (FIPS PUBS) publications in this series make up the Federal Information Processing Standards Register. The register serves as the official source of information in the Federal Government regarding standards issued by NBS pursuant to the Federal Property and Administrative Services Act of 1949 as amended, Public Law 89-306 (79 Stat. 1127), and as implemented by Executive Order 11717 (38 FR 12315, dated May 11, 1973) and Part 6 of Title 15 CFR (Code of Federal Regulations). FIPS PUBS may be purchased from the National Technical Information Service, Springfield, VA 22161.

APPLIED MATHEMATICS SERIES-mathematical tables, manuals, and studies of special interest to physicists, engineers, chemists, biologists, mathematicians, computer programmers, and others in scientific and technical work.

NATIONAL STANDARD REFERENCE DATA SERIES—provides quantitative data on the physical and chemical properties of materials, compiled from the world's literature and critically evaluated. Developed under a worldwide program coordinated by NBS, under authority of National Standard Data Act (Public Law 90-396). This series supplements the JPCRD, see also Section 2.3.

CONSUMER INFORMATION SERIES- -practical information, based on NBS research and experience, on areas of interest to the consumer. Easily understandable language and illustrations provide useful background knowledge for shopping in today's technological marketplace.


A special series of interim or final reports on work performed by NBS for outside sponsors (both Government and non-government). In general, initial distribution is handled by the sponsor; public distribution is by the National Technical Information Services, Springfield, VA 22161, in paper copy or microfiche. (See pages 10 to 48 for price lists.)

BUILDING SCIENCE SERIES-disseminates technical information developed at the Bureau on building materials, components, systems, and whole structures. The series presents research results, test methods, and performance criteria related to the structural and environmental functions and the durability and safety characteristics of building elements and systems. TECHNICAL NOTES-studies or reports complete in themselves but restrictive in their treatment of a subject. Like monographs but not so comprehensive in scope or definitive in treatment of the subject area. Often serve as a vehicle for final reports of work performed at NBS under the sponsorship of other Government agencies. Special subject-matter subseries include Optical Radiation Measurements (TN594- ) and Self Calibrations Manual for Optical Radiation (TN910-). VOLUNTARY PRODUCT STANDARDS—developed under procedures published by the U.S. Department of Commerce in Part 10, Title 15, of the Code of Federal Regulations. The standards establish nationally recognized requirements for products, and provide all concerned interests with a basis for common understanding of the characteristics of the products. The National Bu


Grantee/contractor reports are prepared by non-NBS persons or organizations working under grant or contract from the National Bureau of Standards. Those contract reports not incorporated into the formal NBS publication series are available directly from the National Technical Information Service (NTIS), Springfield, VA 22161, in paper copy or microfiche unless otherwise stated. When ordering a report from NTIS you must order it by the “COM, PB, AD, or N" number as indicated.
