New CSRC Publication Features
December 21, 2017

We recently made a few enhancements to CSRC Publications:

  1. improved performance of publication search;
  2. document history in detailed publication records, that link draft and final versions of a particular publication/revision to one another;
  3. keyword searches can be sorted by relevance ranking; and
  4. shortcut URLs (updated "Quick Links") to access publication series more easily:
