    Content Guiding Principles

    • Science.gov presents select, web-based government science information
    • The focus is on subject rather than government organization
    • The audience is the science aware citizen, including educators, students, professional researchers, and members of the general public with an interest in science and technology
    • The sites are selected and cataloged with the user in mind
