OSTI coordinates the STI Program (STIP), a complex-wide collaboration across DOE programs, field offices, national laboratories, and contractors to disseminate and preserve the Department’s STI. In addition to text, OSTI recognizes the growing need to capture scientific research data and pursues this mission responsibility. OSTI builds on existing partnerships and seeks strategic alliances across a wide range of communities, including DOE, interagency, international, and private sector, to increase access to the world’s research and development.
From developing and publishing the world-renowned Nuclear Science Abstracts in 1948 to launching the online WorldWideScience.org in 2007, OSTI has been a first-adopter of promising technologies. Today OSTI is developing new and better ways to speed access to larger volumes of high quality, more relevant, and authoritative scientific content. Through its commitment to innovation and its focus on producing intuitive and easy-to-use applications, OSTI is laying a solid foundation for the future.

Throughout its history, OSTI has worked with representatives across the agency—in laboratories, field offices, Headquarters—to facilitate access to information and to promulgate policy and best practices for STI management. OSTI will work to broaden its complex-wide collaboration by increasing communications beyond the designated STI points of contact and engaging others across DOE in projects that advance STIP goals.
