This is a public database containing highlights of BER programmatic research generated by program managers. It is updated regularly as new highlights and occasional press releases are received.
Topical Searches can be conducted by selecting one or multiple topics from the various listed categories (Cross-Cutting, User Facilities and Centers, and Research Areas).
Search results are displayed in reverse chronological order.
To list all of the entries in the database, click the ‘Clear all choices’ button, then click the ‘Search’ button.
Full Text Searches can be conducted using the Keyword Search option. The search engine examines all of the words in every stored entry and displays highlights matching the search words supplied. Keyword Search can be further narrowed by selecting one or more of the listed topics.
Searches also can be conducted by the publication date of the journal article associated with the research highlight or by BER division.
Topic codes have been assigned to each of the highlights in this database. Because many highlights transcend a number of programs and research areas, coding has been prioritized for the most relevant topic categories to prevent searches from becoming nonspecific. This means that certain specialized searches may require several searches to obtain all of the entries being sought.
If you find there are highlights that should receive different codes, please notify Kris Christen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
