Submit a research report to MOD

Find out how to submit your research to Athena, Dstl's central repository of MOD-sponsored scientific and technical research reports.

Athena will add any newly published science and technology ( S&T ) research reports produced in support of the Ministry of Defence ( MOD ) S&T programme into the Athena report collection free of charge as long as reports meet the following criteria:

  • all material must have an S&T focus
  • all material must be technically reviewed
  • all material must include a completed report documentation page (see below)

Reports sent to Athena that don’t meet this criteria will not be added to the collection.

Report documentation page

The report documentation page is a 2-page form that must be attached to the end of each report, regardless of whether the report template used is a Defence Science and Technology Laboratory ( Dstl ) template, MOD template, industry template or a customer-specific template.

The report documentation page is comprised of a number of fields. This allows the author to provide a range of information about the report, for example, its classification and its intellectual property conditions (such as copyright conditions and who the report can be released to). This information helps Athena to manage the report appropriately. It also enables effective search and retrieval of the document from the Athena report collection.

Read this guidance before completing the form.
