"Computing research relies heavily on the rapid dissemination of results. As a result, the formal process of submitting papers to journals has been augmented by other, more rapid, dissemination methods. Originally these involved printed documents, such as technical reports and conference papers. Then researchers started taking advantage of the Internet, putting papers on ftp sites and later on various web sites. But these resources were fragmented. There was no single repository to which researchers from the whole field of computing could submit reports, no single place to search for research results, and no guarantee that information would be archived at the end of a research project.
This changed in September 1998. Through a partnership of ACM, the arXiv.org e-print archive (originally at Los Alamos, now based at Cornell), and NCSTRL (Networked Computer Science Technical Reference Library), an online Computing Research Repository (CoRR) has been established. The CoRR is available to all members of the community at no charge.
We encourage you to use the service right away. It increases in value as more researchers use it. Submitting your research articles to the repository will be the surest way to have your work reach a wide audience." from web site
"The EECS Technical Memorandum Series provides a dated archive of EECS research. It includes Ph.D. theses and master's reports as well as technical documents that complement traditional publication media such as journals. For example, technical reports may document work in progress, early versions of results that are eventually published in more traditional media, and supplemental information such as long proofs, software documentation, code listings, or elaborated examples.
Technical reports listed here include the EECS Technical Report series ( started in October 2005 ), the CS Technical Report series ( from 1982 to 2005 ), and the ERL Technical report series ( from 1984 to 2005 ). Full-text is included for the EECS and CS series, but not for the ERL series. In the case of the ERL series, full-text may be available on other web sites ( such as the personal web pages of the authors )." from UC Berkeley web site
Networked Computer Science Technical Library has been retired and contents are contained here.
"Available here are the abstracts and full-text of HP Labs Technical Reports. Where only the abstract appears, the full-text is unavailable due to copyright considerations.
Our research spans a wide range of technical disciplines and touches all of HP's businesses. Collectively, we are applying our expertise in these areas to address five opportunities that we believe are crucial to defining the future of information technology:
- Information explosion – Acquiring, analyzing and delivering the right information to individuals and businesses so they can act on it.
- Dynamic cloud services – Developing web platforms and cloud services that are dynamically personalized based on your location, preferences, calendar and communities.
- Content transformation – Enabling the fluid transformation of content from analog to digital, from device to device, and from digital content to physical products.
- Intelligent infrastructure – Designing smarter, more secure devices, networks and scalable architectures that work together to connect individuals and businesses to rich, dynamic content and services.
- Sustainability – Creating technologies, IT infrastructure and new business models for the lower carbon economy that save money and leave a lighter footprint on the environment."
"Our intent is to provide the scientific community with access to technical reports written by members of the IBM Research community. Some reports are available for download. Once a technical report is published in either a journal or conference proceedings, it is sometimes replaced with a reference to the external source. Please respect any copyright notices and limited distribution notices included in these reports.
IBM research areas include: Chemistry; Computer Science; Computer Engineering; Electrical Engineering; Materials Science; Mathematical Sciences; Physics; Services Science, Management, & Engineering; and Systems." from International Business Machines Corporation - IBM - web site
