What is Adopt-A-Doc? Adopt-A-Doc is another way OSTI is working to increase the availability of important research. You can be a part of accelerating scientific discovery and help make important research available online by sponsoring the digitization of any adoptable U.S Department of Energy (DOE) technical report. Your report will be made full-text searchable by DOE search engines like Science Accelerator.gov and Science.gov; as well as be exposed to general purpose search engines like Google, Bing, and Yahoo.
The Adopt-A-Doc database currently has over 200,000 technical reports that have not been digitized and are available for adoption. You may find a technical report that you want to share with others or you think worthy of making broadly available on the web to support the advancement of science. The Adopt-A-Doc service is available for a nominal fee and allows you to request recognition via a certificate of appreciation indicating that the electronic technical report was made possible by your contribution. The certificate will appear as the first page of the document for the indefinite future. You may also request an acknowledgment in honor or in memory of a recipient.
