Find and share global research with new tools at
WorldWideScience.org


You can now quickly hone your research results list to the documents you need and then share them via social networking sites using the new features at WorldWideScience.org. This free online science gateway to global databases now offers clustering of results by publication and author, as well as by topic and date. This enhancement allows you to quickly narrow a results list from the databases of approximately 60 countries to the research you are seeking.

Using a quick share tool, you can add your results to social networking sites to discuss and share with friends and colleagues. In addition, you can easily bookmark your search topic as well as set up weekly alerts.

WorldWideScience.org has been upgraded for increased speed and improved relevance ranking. WorldWideScience.org searches more than 375 million pages of research information in real time via a single query. Advanced search options are available.

WorldWideScience.org now searches science and technology research and development results from 80 percent of the world’s population. The multilateral WorldWideScience Alliance was established in June 2008 to govern this rapidly growing resource.

WorldWideScience.org was conceived and developed by the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI), which is within the Office of Science.
