More Energy Department research goes online due to OSTI, IAEA collaboration

Because we live in a digital world, many people mistakenly believe all research is easily available online. Not only is this a false assumption, it's not even an easy task to digitize the volume of research currently available in paper format and get it posted online.

That's why OSTI is pleased to announce that we've recently posted 15,000 DOE research reports heretofore only available in paper or microfiche. These important research documents are now easily accessible to researchers and the public via OSTI's Information Bridge.

The Science Knowledge Imperative: Making non-Googleable Science Findable

Just as science progresses only if knowledge is shared, accelerating the sharing of knowledge accelerates science. All of us engaged in disseminating science knowledge have the opportunity and obligation to do our jobs better, for to do so accelerates science itself. 

To this end, I propose a grand challenge--to make more science available to, and searchable by, more people than ever before. A momentous milestone will be achieved once we enable everyone with web access the ability to search with unparalleled precision a billion pages of authoritative science. Already, considerable...
