Office of Scientific and Technical Information 2015-2019 Strategic Plan (922-KB PDF)
The U.S. Department of Energy Office of Scientific and Technical Information 2015-2019 Strategic Plan highlights OSTI’s renewed focus on providing comprehensive access to the results of DOE research and development investments. We have streamlined the portfolio of our public-facing web products to make it easier to find DOE’s R&D results, and we are working to ensure our collections and portals reflect the complete R&D output of DOE. The OSTI Strategic Plan organizes our goals around the sequential and process-oriented nature of OSTI’s business, including the collection, preservation, and dissemination of scientific and technical information emanating from DOE R&D efforts. An extremely exciting element of the Plan is implementation of public access to the peer-reviewed scholarly publications resulting from DOE R&D funding. This Plan is intended to give OSTI strategic focus and discipline, but it is fluid and dynamic and will be adapted and updated as unforeseen conditions and opportunities arise. Above all, OSTI is committed to serving DOE and the American public, and we will listen, respond, and act in your interest.

Office of Scientific and Technical Information 2009-2013 Strategic Plan (2181-KB PDF)
OSTI works to ensure that U.S. scientists and engineers, educators, entrepreneurs, and the public find the right science information fast. 
What if we could speed the pace of science so that tomorrow’s solutions arrive sooner? We would thus raise our standard of living, improve our quality of life, and increase the security of our Nation. These grand outcomes can be achieved by committing to openly sharing scientific research data and spreading the world’s great scientific discoveries faster. This Strategic Plan outlines steps that would improve the competitiveness of our scientists and engineers by providing them with fast and efficient access to national and international bodies of knowledge relevant to their fields, and to ensure that quality science content is readily findable for citizens everywhere.
