Accelerating Access

Shared Knowledge Is the Enabler of Scientific Progress

OSTI is dedicated to the principle that, to advance science, research must be shared. With its proven track record in electronic delivery of groundbreaking information tools and services, OSTI is a leader in increasing access to the government's vast stores of R&D results. As OSTI has increased precision and power of information search tools, information access to DOE R&D results has become quicker, more convenient, and more complete than ever before.
