Documentation is an important component of the activities of the Academy.

Documentation following the conventions of science serves two purposes: Assessment and recognition of the knowledge contributed by the Academy to the existing corpus of knowledge. The Academy attempts to document and publish all research reports and studies that it undertakes so as to fulfil its role as a repository of scientific knowledge for the public good especially the scientific community. The Academy is now working on developing an effective system of dissemination to enable the spread of the information as far and as wide as possible.
