OSTI by the numbers

by Tim Byrne 02 Nov, 2012 in Products and Content

For those of you who like numbers, I thought I would give you a few numbers about some of OSTI’s databases and search products. 

  • The DOE Information Bridge now has over 300,000 full-text STI reports. While most of these are post 1991, there are over 84,000 reports published prior to 1990.
  • The Energy Citations Database contains over 2.4 million citations and they are not just technical reports. ECD has over 1.4 million journal articles.
  • DOepatents has over 27,000 patents resulting from DOE-sponsored research and development.
  • The E-Print Network searches over 5.5 million e-prints, over 35,000 websites, over 3100 scholarly societies, and over 50 databases.
  • The Energy Science and Technology Software Center (ESTSC) distributes over 1300 software packages.
  • ScienceCinema has over 2600 science and technology related videos for your viewing pleasure.
  • searches 55 databases from 13 federal agencies.
  • lets you search 83 collections from over 70 countries in 9 different languages.

Now You Can Find Scientific Software at the DOE Science Accelerator

The centralized software center of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has been added to the DOE Science Accelerator search capability. This means that in addition to current and legacy research findings, patents, accomplishments and project descriptions, users of the Science Accelerator can now find federally funded scientific and technical software developed by DOE national laboratories, other facilities and DOE contractors. This software, licensed and distributed by the Energy Science and Technology Software Center (ESTSC), represents the latest in DOE technology and contains selected scientific and technical software from the Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). The DOE Science Accelerator is a gateway to key DOE databases and resources.
