Good Research Needs Good Data!

Science Needs Information Access to Full Coverage of Literature AND Access Beyond Traditional Forms of STI

Life at the scientific frontier is changing.
The ways in which research is conducted, conveyed, and shared are far different today than just a few years ago.
Yet these changes only hint at the technology-driven transformation that is on the horizon.
- Just as we in STIP transformed access from "bib data" in databases to searchable FT documents, now we need to ensure that access goes beyond the boundaries of full text.
Among federal R&D circles, access to new forms of STI and open access are being explored.
