Classification and Copyright

CSO Form ‘Presentation/Publication Release and Clearance Certificate’ (CSO Form 13), requests that you ensure that your paper is free from any copyright restrictions that may prevent the STO from publishing your work. It is requested that you pay particular attention to this clause.
Further, you are required to give your paper a suitable security classification. In this regard, the STO would prefer that the use of NATO Unclassified be avoided wherever possible, particularly if you wish your paper to reach a wide unrestricted audience. If this is the case then please you mark your paper ‘free for public release’ on the Form 13. Clearly, this may not always be possible and of course we will process the material based upon the classification you provide.
