From the Manhattan Project to the present, OSTI has been committed to ensuring access to DOE R&D results. Through the development of a suite of web-based data sets and information discovery tools, scientific and technical information is made widely available to the scientific community and the public. From the set of databases, tools, and services that OSTI made available to data.gov for the Open Government Initiative, five data sets were recently identified by the Department of Energy as "high value" data sets. This is information that DOE has amassed over the years and are considered of great use to the general public. The five high value data sets from the Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI) include DOE Research and Development Project Summaries (data services), Energy Citations Database (data services), Information Bridge (data services), Geothermal/Geothermal Legacy Data (data services), and DOE Patents Database (data services). These tools have made DOE R&D results more transparent and have made scientific information access more convenient than ever before. View the feature on OSTI OpenGov initiatives.
