WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR STAR
All users of this abstract service are urged to forward reports to be considered for announcement in STAR. This will aid NASA in its efforts to provide the fullest possible coverage of all scientific and technical publications that might support aeronautics and space research and development. If you have prepared relevant reports (other than those that you will transmit to NASA, DOD, or DOE through the usual contract- or grant-reporting channels), please send them for consideration to the NASA Scientific and Technical Information Facility, P.O. Box 8757, BWI Airport, Maryland 21240. Reprints of journal articles, book chapters, and conference papers are also welcome. These will be considered for announcement in STAR's companion journal, International Aerospace Abstracts. You may specify a particular source to be included in a report announcement if you wish; otherwise the report will be placed on public sale at the National Technical Information Service. Copyrighted publications will be announced but not distributed or sold.

Scientific and Technical Aerospace Reports (STAR) is a major component of a comprehensive National Aeronautics and Space Administration information system covering aeronautics, space, and supporting disciplines. STAR is issued on the 8th and 23rd of each month and announces current publications of the following types:
NASA, NASA contractor, and NASA grantee reports
Reports issued by other U.S. Government Agencies, domestic and foreign
• Translations in report form
NASA-owned patents and patent applications
Other U.S. Government Agency and foreign patents and patent applications
• Domestic and foreign dissertations and theses
Journal, book, and conference literature, cover-to-cover journal translations, and certain
Subject scope of STAR, and IAA includes all aspects of aeronautics and space research and development, supporting basic and applied research, and applications. Aerospace aspects of earth resources, energy development, conservation, oceanography, environmental protection, urban transportation, and other topics of high national priority are also covered.
OTHER NASA PUBLICATIONS
Other NASA publications and information services are described in the publication, The
HOW TO USE STAR SUBJECT CATEGORIES
STAR is categorized by 10 major subject divisions divided into 76 specific subject categories and one general category/division. The major subject divisions are listed in the Table of Contents, together with a note for each that defines its scope and provides any cross-references. For example:
Includes aeronautics (general); aerodynamics; air transportation and safety; aircraft communications and navigation; aircraft design, testing and performance; aircraft instrumentation; aircraft propulsion and power; aircraft stability and control; and research and support facililties (air).
For related information see also Astronautics.
Each major division is further divided into as many as nine specific categories, which are identified by category numbers.
Abstracts in STAR are grouped by specific category, the categories appearing in sequential order. Category breaks in the abstract section are identified by the category number and title, and a scope note. Cross-references to other categories are provided as appropriate. For example:
Includes aerodynamics of bodies, combinations, wings, rotors, and control surfaces; and internal flow in ducts and turbomachinery.
For related information see also 34 Fluid Mechanics and Heat Transfer.
Individual STAR abstracts are not ordinarily cross-referenced, except for certain conference reports or book translations that have had separate abstracts written for their component papers or chapters. Citations and abstracts of the components follow immediately after those of the parent document. When the subject content of a component differs sufficiently from the general content of the parent, a cross-reference citation also is printed at the end of the category to which it normally would have been assigned if it were independent.
DOCUMENTS ON MICROFICHE
Documents on microfiche") are designated by a pound sign (#) following the accession number. The pound sign is used without regard to the source or quality of the microfiche.
