For those of you who like numbers, I thought I would give you a few numbers about some of OSTI’s databases and search products. 

  • The DOE Information Bridge now has over 300,000 full-text STI reports. While most of these are post 1991, there are over 84,000 reports published prior to 1990.
  • The Energy Citations Database contains over 2.4 million citations and they are not just technical reports. ECD has over 1.4 million journal articles.

  • The E-Print Network searches over 5.5 million e-prints, over 35,000 websites, over 3100 scholarly societies, and over 50 databases.
  • The Energy Science and Technology Software Center (ESTSC) distributes over 1300 software packages.
  • ScienceCinema has over 2600 science and technology related videos for your viewing pleasure.
