The state-of-the-art reports can be grouped into three categories (for the sake of convenience).

  1. Reviews and Surveys; 
  2. Advances and Progresses; and 
  3. Trend Reports. 

The difference between these categories of reference sources is marginal. They cover topics of current significance of a particular rapidly advancing field of a subject. They bring together articles pertaining to diverse aspects of a particular field at intervals for a diverse audience. They publish critical articles and surveys, based on published literature, research in progress and patterns in development. They are addressed to specialists in the field, viz;

  1. Scientists, engineers and professionals engaged in research and development activities; 
  2. Managers, economists and business entrepreneurs engaged in small and large scale business, marketing, commerce, and industries; 
  3. Technicians, supervisors .and communicators; and 
  4. Policy makers in government.

They have played major role in the advancement of the subject they review. They use a variety of styles for presenting the new development
