An examination may be taken which leads to the award of a certificate.

Note on Publications

We should like to point out that AFB-INFO is not intended as a forum for advertising any and every new peace research publication.

(1) The section `German Peace Research Publications in English' lists all English-language publications known or made known to us. We do not necessarily hold copies of these publications: the purpose of this section is to publicize the works concerned in the English-language edition of AFB-INFO.

(2) The `Literature' section includes only those publications that have been sent to the AFB and which then become part of its library holdings. New publications brought to our notice only through brochures or letters cannot be listed, as AFB-INFO would then lose much of its character as a scholarly information source.. We hope readers will appreciate our position.
