Terms Used in Report Tables below:
  1. (IJC-xxx), where  xxx = 001-121, refers to the project numbering scheme used by IJC in the PLUARG Technical Report List.
     
  2. (IJC: IDxxx.pdf) refers to the filename used by IJC (e.g. ID464.pdf) on their web site, the majority of which are page-image PDFs of the original hard copy reports. All pdf files on this site are text-based searchable files, created either by scanning the printed version, or by converting image-based pdfs into text-based pdfs using OCR software, which reduces files size to a fraction of their original file size and results in much clearer, re-formatted text.
