The Research and Publication Team researches, writes, and publishes relevant manuscripts for use by US Army leaders and policy makers. The CSI Press publishes works in a variety of layouts and formats with all works available online at our website for free downloading. The R&P Team also conducts the CSI Oral History program, called the Operational Leadership Experience (OLE), which archives in a database the experiences of Soldiers during recent operations. The Team also writes the contemporary history of operations in Iraq and Afghanistan in the On Point and A Different Kind of War book series. And the R&P Team is the lead for the CSI/TRADOC periodic symposium that hosts leading academics and senior military leaders as they address historical topics relevant to today's current operations.
