Technical Reports

A guide to technical reports: what they are, where they come from, how to find them.

Definition

Technical reports describe the process, progress, or results of technical or scientific research. Include in-depth experimental details, data, and results.

Reasons to Use

Technical reports are usually produced to report on a specific research need. They can serve as a report of accountability to the organization funding the research. They provides access to the information before it is published elsewhere.

How to Evaluate

Technical Reports are usually not peer-reviewed.  They need to be evaluated on how the problem, research method, and results are described.
