You can now easily access science from around the world via
a single Web entry point, www.WorldWideScience.org.
This new global science gateway opened for free public access on June 22 at
the public meeting of the International Council
for Scientific and Technical Information Annual General Assembly in Nancy,
France. WorldWideScience.org currently retrieves research results from more
than 200 million pages of information from 15 national portals of 10 countries
– Australia, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Japan, the Netherlands,
the United Kingdom, and the United States. The gateway, WorldWideScience.org,
was developed and is maintained by the U.S. Department
of Energy Office of Scientific and Technical Information. It gives citizens,
researchers and anyone interested in science the capability to search science
portals not easily accessible through popular search technology such as that
deployed by Google, Yahoo!, and
many other commercial search engines. Please see the DOE press
release: Global Science Gateway Now Open.
