From the "Abstract": "This document presents a sampling of unclassified, unlimited distribution (public release) NPS [Naval Postgraduate School] student theses, MBA Professional reports and NPS faculty research reports. These citations were collated from Calhoun, the Dudley Knox Library's publicly accessible institutional archive https://calhoun.nps.edu/public/ and the Homeland Security Digital Library (HSDL) https://www.hsdl.org/c/. The following search terms were used as well as a broad interpretation of decision-making needs in difficult situations. Theses and report searches were generally limited to title or abstract: (1) Pandemic; (2) Influenza; (3) Quarantine; (4) Vaccine OR vaccination; (5) Infectious disease; (6) Medical surge; (7) Surge capacity; (8) Mass casualty; (9) Shelter in place; [and] (10) Public health. As noted, the majority of the theses were done through the National Security Affairs department and mostly done by students in the Center for Homeland Defense and Security (CHDS) Master's program who, as first responders, have a lot of firsthand experience in these types of events and related planning exercises."
