OSTI.gov
http://www.OSTI.gov/

The Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI) has taken another step in improving citizen and researcher access to DOE research results. Specifically, OSTI has redesigned its homepage and website so that OSTI.GOV now serves as the search tool for DOE’s research and development (R&D) results, as well as OSTI’s organizational hub. “OSTI.GOV is a consolidation of OSTI’s homepage and our primary search tool for DOE-funded science, technology, and engineering research results, a streamlining intended to enhance the user experience and make it easier to manage performance and overall website quality,” said OSTI Director Brian Hitson regarding the latest improvement in electronic delivery of R&D information. “OSTI.GOV was created to simplify the user search interface, drive search of DOE STI through the homepage, help to unify OSTI’s product environment, and provide intuitive navigation beyond search functionality.” he search tool feature of OSTI.GOV, formerly called SciTech Connect, makes available over 70 years of research results from DOE and its predecessor agencies, including journal articles/accepted manuscripts and related metadata; technical reports; scientific research datasets and collections; scientific software; conference and workshop papers; books and theses; patents; and multimedia. OSTI.GOV contains nearly 3 million total records, including citations to 1.5 million journal articles, 1 million of which have digital object identifiers linking to full-text articles on publishers’ websites. It also has more than 445,000 full-text DOE-funded documents. OSTI.GOV provides access to this DOE STI by offering easy-to-use search capabilities and customization options. For the DOE community, additional citation information is available to help researchers evaluate article impact and find related research. In addition, OSTI.GOV provides information about OSTI and its other search tools, services, and operations. The website includes information about OSTI’s organization, leadership, and strategic plan; policy and guidance regarding the management and submission of DOE-funded R&D research results to OSTI; technical support for submitting research results using OSTI’s corporate submission tool, E-Link; resources about data services and developer tools, including the DOE Data ID Service, API documentation, OAI services, and DOE MARC records; and news about OSTI and its search tools and services.
