Authors of DOE scientific and technical reports are getting their research results made electronically available worldwide courtesy of the Office of Scientific and Technical Information, http://www.osti.gov/.
OSTI is making research results from work performed under DOE-sponsored contracts available via an array of web based outlets including powerful federated searching products such as Science Accelerator, Science.gov, and World Wide Science.
Whenever OSTI receives a scientific and technical report from a facility doing work for the Department of Energy, OSTI processes that report and makes it publicly available. Authors listed on the report are notified that their work is publicly available and are given the URL where they can view their report. Moreover, authors receiving this notification are eligible to request reference linking that OSTI provides. Using this service, authors can request OSTI to add hyperlinks, where available, to the references at the end of their report.
Authors are encouraged to submit additional research reports to OSTI in order to increase awareness of their research activities, to provide their findings to a broad and diverse audience of potential beneficiaries, and to add to the body of scientific knowledge in their field of study.
This service is one of the many activities OSTI conducts as a part of its ongoing efforts to ensure that research results from billions of dollars of DOE sponsored research and development contracts are made available to the world's scientific community.
