Abstract : The objectives of this project are to acquire, review, and analyze, on an ongoing basis, information on research pertaining to the biological effects of radiofrequency radiation (RFR) for the preparation of a computer data base of analyses at the USAF School of Aerospace Medicine (USAFSAM). The method in use is to: (1) select documents judged to be representative of prior and current research on various RFR-bioeffects topics, (2) analyze in detail the contents of each such document, and (3) assess the validity and significant of the results presented. In this third report, the major RFR-bioeffects topics are listed and the revised format used for analyzing each selected document is described. During the period covered by this report, 38 additional analyses were completed, for a total of 118 analyses. The texts of the additional analyses are presented in Appendix A. Since the issuance of the first two reports, the analyses contained therein have been assigned identification numbers 1 through 80, and the sequence is continued for the analyses in Appendix A. In addition, to the text, each analysis includes information for computer retrieval by authors, key words, year of publication, and RFR parameters. A master citation list of all 118 analyses completed thus far is given in Appendix B. This is arranged alphabetically by first author.
