Export control of publications (Dual-Use)

Publications may contain information that poses a significant threat to public health, safety or the environment because it can be used for both civilian and military or terrorist purposes (dual use). It is the responsibility of the scientists and scholars to critically examine their own manuscript before publication to see whether it contains such information that is not already in the public domain or is relevant to fundamental research. If this cannot be ruled out with certainty, the Export Control Unit should be consulted before publication.
