The NRC Publications Archive is the National Research Council Publications Archive. It is a searchable online repository of NRC-authored publications. It includes a wide range of publications written by NRC researchers from all NRC portfolios.
Our system depends on author submissions. We receive submissions on a regular basis and update the archive daily to reflect any new additions.
We are currently processing a backlog of retrospective publications. When this is completed, the NRC Publications Archive will date from 1916 to present day.
To see if the publication offers access to the full text, you must access the full item record. To do this, click on the title of the item within your search results. If the full text is available, a link entitled "View deposited version" or a DOI will appear at the top of the record.
The NRC Publications Archive is a citation database containing bibliographic information about NRC-authored publications. While every attempt is made to include a link to the full text of a publication, the database is not a full-text database.
If you encounter a link that does not work or if you have clicked on a part of a record and received an error message, please report this error as soon as possible by calling 613-998-8544 or 1-800-668-1222 (toll-free) or by sending an email to PublicationsArchive-ArchivesPublications@nrc-cnrc.gc.ca.
Some records contain more information than others. If you feel that more information should be provided for a given record, please don't hesitate to use the "Report a correction" link on the record page to submit your suggestions
You have the option of setting up RSS feeds by clicking on the icon located at the top of the results page.
Not directly. Each NRC portfolio has selected a submission administrator who is responsible for the submission of manuscripts to the NRC Publications Archive.
NRC Publications Archive Metadata staff performs quality assurance on all submissions before adding records or making corrections to the Archive.
Quality assurance has not been performed on publications submitted to the Archive using a batch upload process. Users are encouraged to use the "Report a correction" link at the bottom of each record if they have noticed an error or omission in the record.
The data within the NRC Publications Archive comes from a variety of sources in a number of different formats. Those formats include different variations on how to cite author names.
If your name is not appearing correctly, please click on "Report a correction" link at the bottom of the record and submit the correct information.
The "Export" function allows you to save bibliographic information from the record to be used with citation software. Please note that this function does not provide access to the full text of the document. The full text is only available from the NRC Publications Archive and only in cases in which there is a link from the record that allows you to "View [the] deposited version" or a DOI.
The main search box searches only the title and abstract fields. Therefore, only institutes/portfolios whose names appear in the document's title or abstract will be retrieved.
Please use the "Advanced Search" function to retrieve documents affiliated with a particular institute or portfolio.
There is currently no way to limit the results of a search to records for which the full text is available.
We are currently in the process of enhancing the retrospective coverage of the NRC Publications Archive. At the same time, we are accepting recent publications. Therefore, there may be instances in which older publications appear before newer ones.
Please note that some of your publications may be considered by your portfolio to be "protected or classified". These publications will not be visible in the repository but may appear when your submission administrator generates publication reports for your portfolio using the NRC Publications Archive Reporting Module.
If there are publications you feel should be visible in the NRC Publications Archive, please submit these publications to your submission administrator.
"Non-NRC publications" are publications authored by NRC authors prior to their employment by NRC.
