Technical Reports

Technical reports are a major source of scientific and technical information. A technical report describes different organizations' final results of technical or scientific research for internal use or to the funding organizations. 

Based on the sponsoring organization, technical reports fall into two categories: government sponsored or privately funded research reports. Finding technical reports can be difficult due to the lack of systematic control over their publication and dissemination. 

References to technical reports may include agency, society, or company delineator, specific number, title, author, and date. For example:

IBM Research RC25276
Accelerating the Deployment of Security Service Infrastructure with Collective Intelligence and Analytics by Maja Vukovic, Christopher Giblin, Sriram K. Rajagopal.
CUCS-001-05(PS); CUCS-001-05(PDF)
The Virtual Device: Expanding Wireless Communication Services Through Service Discovery and Session Mobility by Ron Shacham, Henning Schulzrinne, Srisakul Thakolsri, and Wolfgang Kellerer.
