Research Results


JARPA/JARPAII
papers published in peer-reviewed journals

List of scientific papers based on data and samples collected by JARPA and JARPA II.

Note: L-J= document or publication based on lethal sampling by Japanese scientists; L-F= lethal, foreign scientist; NL-J= nonlethal, Japanese scientist; NL-F= non-lethal, foreign scientist; L,NL-J= lethal and non-lethal, Japanese scientist.

Documents or peer-reviewed publications having as a first author a foreign scientist commonly followed a data request or collaboration research agreement with ICR. In a few cases foreign scientists have used published data from JARPA or JARPA II in their analyses and papers, without a formal agreement with ICR. These cases are indicated by a symbol (&).
