    • You can search by author, date, title, keyword, and in some cases, by project number.
    • To find publications for projects funded by the UWC or SWG, enter “Urban+Water+Consortium” or “Stormwater+Group” into the search fields.

    • If you aren’t sure what you’re looking for, you can browse publications by title, date, and author.
  • For research reports:
    • Sometimes the lead author on a report may be different than the lead PI on the original project.
    • The report publication year on the repository usually will not correspond to the year that the project was initially funded.
    • Sometimes the publication title differs from the original project title.
