The document collection effort to map global efforts for disarmament and security (german title: Dokumentation zur Abrüstung und Sicherheit) has begun in 1960. Since 2014, the database is available online and free of charge. Founded by Heinrich Siegler, ISPK research director Professor Dr. Joachim Krause took over the yearly publication in 1991. The edited volume is a joint effort by ISPK research staff and Germany's Foreign Office (Auswärtiges Amt).
