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.

Speeding global access to scientific information speeds discovery, encourages collaboration, and accelerates revolutionary advances in science. allows searching of 32 databases, comprising more than 200 million pages, from 44 cooperating countries. Federated search technology allows users to simultaneously search the 200 million pages from all 32 databases in real-time with a single query. is modeled after OSTI's, a gateway to over 50 million pages of authoritative research and development results and other selected science information provided by U.S. government agencies. Much like,'s content is aggregated from cooperating organizations. For, 17 scientific and technical organizations from 13 federal agencies participate in the Alliance and contribute the content. has evolved through several...
