A major objective of the LENR Research Documentation Initiative is to make the research of the participating investigators better known to others in the field and to the larger scientific community. Postings of descriptions of LENR research records is at the discretion of the participating researchers.
Participants in the LRDI vary greatly in their LENR research experience and types and quantity of records. Other variiables are the methods of recording experiments, kinds of storage media and accessibility of the records. The LRDI procedure is flexible and is readily adapted to the various researcher situations. As noted, a project is set up under the LRDI umbrella for each participant or organization.
Candidates for participation are identified based on contributions to the LENR research, level of interest in the LRDI, proximity to leaving the field and potential risks of loss of the records. The participants as of July 2020 are listed below with Project names and approximate start dates. The LRDI Project Reports are listed here.

The projects are in various stages of the LRDI procedure, from initial site visit to draft versions of the report. Records have been collected, and interviews have been accomplished with each of the participants. Nearly all of the investigators have published reports, electronic and hardcopy files, and a LENR library, and most of them have labs and associated experimental records.
